evidence of the absent - dialogues


50 pages
148 x 210 mm
2019
€10.00

Series of interviews that are part of the research project ‘Evidence of the absent’, developed in residency at Kulturfolger gallery Zürich in 2019. Featuring: Emma Hoette, Pavle Stamenovic, Ravian van den Hil, Elettra Carnelli, Ramon Landolt and David Meier. Plus: interviews by Elettra Carnelli with Eugenia Carnelli, Michele Taborelli and Elif Simge Fettahoglu. 

With dialogues we aim to create a more elaborate understanding together with other related disciplines and  to involve a wider audience than the architectural community. In 2019 we invited six guests to react on our research project. We organised eight public events and  round tables to open up the topic to a wide audience.

The collection of drawings in this book are part of our research project Evidence of the absent, 2019.

‘Drawings on-site’ is a collection of interpretations in form of drawings, collages and ‘walking maps’ that originated through on-site explorations. They are a reaction on the subjective space of potentiality that originates through  on-site architectural simulations in scale 1:1. The interpretations are based on abstractions in different categories: lines, surfaces, shadows, colors, volume. Abstraction allows us to focus on specific aspects, such as rythm, composition and proportion.


Connecting, coinciding, overlapping and colliding were the actions and criteria that we used in the first set of interpretations, to establish new relationships between the projective object and the existing context, in the borderlands between present and future.  The second set of interpretations is developed without taking the existing context into account. Having no longer a connection to the original site, we can more freely explore concepts of completing, extending, compressing, cutting and adding, with a white canvas as the new surrounding.
