The Blind Curator

Co-conceptualiser, Producer 

FK-Kollektiv’s exhibition ‘The Blind Curator’ was an unique topographical presentation thats aim was to redefine the curatorial process,

Through an open call, images were submitted before the event and prints brought directly to the event on the broad themes of; ‘Location’, ‘People’ and ‘Memory’. Every photograph was exhibited that has been submitted. The end number of photographs came to 174.

The blindfolded curator was handed each photograph and placed the image on the exhibition wall, thus beginning the creation of an ever-evolving memory-map.

The next step is then offered the audience, who create connections between the scattered photographs by joining them by the use of string, thus fabricating a shared consciousness of the individual memory snaps.

The fabricated network which weave the scattered photographs together, becomes a reflection of the constructed joint consciousness the collaboration has produced, aiming to link, question and clarify connections and divergences.
