11.09. – 31.10. Fiona Tan: Ideas of Utopia Grafik–Papierarbeit (Repro: Fiona Tan, Shadow Archive IV (detail), 2019, Photogravure, 28,5 x 37,5 cm)
BORCH Gallery presents two photogravure projects by Fiona Tan, approaching different utopian visions, in the exhibition Ideas of Utopia.
Studies for Elsewhere (2018) refers to Thomas More’s book Utopia (1518) and imagines today’s Los Angeles as More’s remote island whose inhabitants live in an ideal society. Shadow Archive (2019) is the realization of a utopian vision by Paul Otelet and Henri La Fontaine who devoted themselves to building an archive of world knowledge, between 1895 and 1945.
