The exhibition comprised an improvised, multi-media site made by grouping together seven elements formed from various media and materials. Found and made objects, broken models and fractured forms, photographs, video and sound immersed the viewer in a place of making and unmaking – a form of heterotopia - to speculate on the notion of a work’s becoming and create new narratives of possibility. His new film ‘I am from Leonia’ influenced by Italo Calvino’s book Invisible Cities (particularly the cities of Leonia and Sophronia) was a new video piece made especially for this show at KDMOFA. In the video which is played on a continuous loop, the viewer witnesses a figure steadily and purposively sweeping his way around what appears to be an abandoned and ruined building and attempting to fulfil the seemingly impossible blueprint referred to by the inhabitants of Invisible Cities.
