This Is Not a Map Art Exhibition
3D exhibition of artists worldwide presented on a model of the city of Jerusalem.
Joseph Kosuth's work, One and Three Chairs (1965), is known to examine the relation between object, visual and verbal references. Many interpretations of the work tie it to the Plato-Aristotle discussion of the theory of forms, asking what is real, can an object have meaning without its verbal definition, is there a perfect, abstract form to all objects and can it be represented visually. This Is Not a Map further problematizes this discussion by adding a fourth, digital referent. Are all digital objects replicas, or do they possess qualities of their own? And if digital tools now enable us to create the perfect geometrical sphere, what is closer to Plato's ideal form - the digital sphere or the imperfect object?
Online exhibitions challenge traditional curation. More than curating objects within a certain space, it requires the creation of the space itself. The Virtual Salon is an online gallery that explores the possibilities of this new digital space, recreating it in every exhibition.
