ART Marathon at Venkatappa Art Gallery
on 9th,10th,11th May 2016.
The concept is closely linked to the structure and execution of this ‘exhibition’: Each day the action starts at 11am and ends at 7 pm. The day is divided into 9 slots, each slot will show 4 or 5 artists at a time including one live/action artists or video/sound artist. Art works brought by artists will be stored on the left of the gallery before their time arrives for display. When their time comes there will be displayed in the presence or absence of the particular artists. Standing by or holding their own art work for 45 minutes is an option for those present. After their turn is over the artworks will be placed on the right side of the gallery. Each day 35 artists will participate, totalling 102 artists in 3 days. Storing, waiting 45 minutes of focus display along with movement of artists will together become part of a collective action in the gallery. The act of ‘showing’ becomes a performance for the artist as well as the artwork itself. Many cameras capturing time-lapse will cover these 3 days of continuous activity. This documentation will be as important as the real action.
