For 14 days George Fraser Gallery will become location for a constellation of belongings. For 14 days, the house will accommodate variant groups of artists that have one premise to play with:
consistently co-install a soft-exhibition-in-residence.
Each day Janaína Moraes will host a guest and a witness artist.
Guest Artists arrive at the space to feel welcomed. They may lay down in the sun and do anything they like, get to understand the rules of the host. If the host has no rules, they can make the rules up, They might know or guess what they are invited to. Or else, the guest artist may do whatever they know about guesting.
Witness Artists arrive at the space to gather evidence about facts that they have personally seen or heard. They are invited to use any resources available to notate narratives and discourses in order to think – in a material way – about the relation between testimony and reality. In general, they practice strategies for witnessing.
