Exhibition: Possession (extend showing period)
Curated by Brian Curtin and Steve Dutton
Co-organized by Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC)
14 March - 26 May 2013
Main Gallery, 8th floor

A sense of immersion in visual culture generally, the use of new and old technologies, a revisiting of earlier critical issues around authorship, originality and context, the un-even significance of signs within a global context, and an embracing of the evacuation of the image characterizes all the artworks in Possession. These issues can challenge the very possibility of a singular or distinct context for understanding the artwork and the presence of the artist all but dissipates; yet much of the artwork within this exhibition subtly undermines this assumption. Possession points to the paradox of a claim for specificities and subjectivities in much contemporary art practice whilst acknowledging the greater forces and agencies which affect it; or, who is in the process of possessing who? And how do we decide?
