Publication Info:

Tracing my echo project is a travelling exhibition and a publication. The project was initiated by artist/curator Froso Papadimitriou and organised by Collaborative Art.

The aim of the ‘Tracing my Echo’ project is to bring together international creatives to discuss their practice and ideas towards creating new artworks for an exhibition and a publication that travels around the world. The project follows the artists’ trajectories by visiting the countries that the participant artists originate from and connecting them with local artists.

The publication is perceived as an alternative exhibition space and not a catalogue or documentation of the exhibition and the featured works are commissioned only for the publication. This curatorial experimentation aims to create an open discussion between the visitors and the artist about the spatial representation of an exhibition and the perception of the artwork within this space. In addition the specific guidelines of the format requirements set a challenge to the curatorial and artistic approach aiming to beget intervention and experimentation in the way that the particularities of the space (book) are used and affect the work and its presentation.

Referencing the ‘Xerox Book‘ 1968 by Seth Siegelaub and John Wendler , and other projects such as ‘Zingmagazine: a curatorial crossing’ by D. Dikeou, ‘The Mule’ etc, that explore the relationship between a publication, curatorial intervention and the understanding of presentational platforms; and reflecting the views of Jonathan Meades in his book ‘Museum without walls’, on artwork reproduction and representation and its dynamic, the book, which rotates in representation of the viewer’s motion in the space, is a platform to discuss, debate and react to the identification of an exhibition space.
