Evidence of the Absent






Evidence of the Absent
One-year residency 2019
Architectural representations, simulations and projections influence our perception and idea of what is to come.How do promise, imagination and real materialisation merge or interact within the existing urban, public environment?’

Through an interdisciplinary research in which physical experience and imagination interacted, we searched for new ways of reading and understanding architecture in relation to its present and future context, by means of drawings, collages and models and 1:1 on-site explorations.



Evidence of the Absent has been developed, shared and presented in a one-year residency at Kulturfolger gallery Zürich, through a self-curated public program composed of eight public events with exhibitions, site-specific installations and round table sessions. Five guests from different disciplines and cities in Europe were invited for a dialogue with rotative studio, to go on-site together to explore a specific part of the research and to participate in the round tables. 

Invited guests: Pavle Stamenovic (architect, RS), Emma Hoette (dancer, UK), Ravian van den Hil (performance curator, NL), Elettra Carnelli (architect, IT/CH), Ramon Landolt & David Meier (musicians, CH).
