[EN] The exhibition ‘Aerial photography does not create space but registers surfaces.’ presents an ongoing project started by Cristina Garrido in 2016. The installation presents a series of photographic images on different media – such as canvas, paper, vinyl, fabric and moving image – displayed in a manner that resembles a contemporary art group exhibition. The images belong to a collection of aerial views posted by international art curators on their Instagram accounts, as these agents document and publish an evidence of their movement. By this appropriation through exhibition, Garrido seeks to emphasize the role of the curator as a producer of images through shows, publications and other media, and seek to invert the established power roles between artist and curator.
The exhibition is curated by Maud Salembier, as part of the 3rd Wandering Arts Biennial.
