congratulations to Sara Cwynar on her upcoming installation at Foam Amsterdam!
SARA CWYNAR - EVERYTHING IN THE STUDIO (DESTROYED) 22 March - 16 May 2013
For the installation, Everything in the Studio (Destroyed), which will be presented at Foam 3h as part of the young talent programme of Foam, Sara Cwynar took all of the materials in her studio at one time, documented each item and arranged it into a digital plan where she could fit the entire contents into a corner of the gallery. She attempted to install the archive according to the plan, which quickly began to fall apart as images and objects were not how she had remembered them. She left the materials for a month, then destroyed the whole thing so that she would be forced to purge the archive - allowing herself to start anew, and documenting everything only with a camera. All that remains of this studio’s worth of materials is the image.
This exhibition has been made possible by Van Bijlevelt Stichting and the Gieskes-Strijbis Fund.
Everything in the Studio (Destroyed) by Sara Cwynar can be seen from 22 March - 16 May 2013 at Foam. Open daily 10 am - 6 pm, Thurs/Fri 10 am - 9 pm. Tickets: € 8,75.
Foam is sponsored by the BankGiroLoterij, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, Delta Lloyd and the VandenEnde Foundation.
