Experience preferred is often a requirement in job descriptions. In the past years I have seen a number of exhibitions by young artists(whatever that means), where I suspect that the shows were planned in detail from the comfort of a desktop based studio. No doubt, virtual realities offer many possibilities to test out views and room situations. But entering the actual exhibition space, why is there quite often this feeling of detachment, like an illustration of the space, or using THE space a s a test space. Has the real space really been in mind, when many installations have been planned?
Or is the real space of an exhibition, just a space scenario, one of many possible?
Maybe even more as the most important thing seems to be the portfolio- the 2 D proof and advertisment for further projects. Good bye reality!
