Suchan Kinoshita's soloshow at P/////AKT in Amsterdam.
Suchan Kinoshita: Architektonische Psychodramen
20 February - 27 March 2022
There is not one but many, a kind of memory scenario that has made itself up out of a spatial perception as there was no other understanding available. Performing a speech while drawing into space, while singing the lines of a forgotten song. The song had to be forgotten in order to refresh its tunes. The contradictions of readdressing while inventing a fictive memory. A play forgetting its scenario, although everybody is playing in it. Memory becomes a leftover which is asking to be performed. Composition becomes the issue.
Suchan Kinoshita’s show at P/////AKT marks the fifth and final part of the exhibition program Am I an Object. It will be responded to in writing and an event by students from the Sandberg Institute Critical Studies Department.
The Artist’s Library
The Artist’s Library is a growing collection of titles that have, in one way or another, been relevant to the artist’s practice. They will be on view during the exhibition and become part of the P/////AKTSALON collection of books afterwards. Suchan Kinoshita highly recommends:
– Gertrude Stein, Ida: A Novel, 1941.
– Mike Kelley, Foul Perfection, essays and criticism, 2003.
– Frances Yates, The Art of Memory, 1966.
– Yes, But Is It Edible?, The Music Of Robert Ashley For Two Or More Voices by Will
Holder and Alex Waterman, 2014.
P/////AKT is a non-profit exhibition space for contemporary art that organizes and facilitates large scale solo presentations through which the audience gets the opportunity to gain insight in the thinking space of the artists.
P/////AKT provides a platform for exceptional, emerging artistic talents, who distinguish themselves through their unique and authentic language and who are capable of giving a different view on the current way of thinking. They are stimulated to work out new developments and are given the opportunity to present their work to a relevant audience. Furthermore, P/////AKT always asks the artists to produce new work that relates to the specific nature and dimensions of the given space and to present their own mental space as an overall presentation within the given context.
