Emanuel Almborg, 2009
Through a gallery reading of selected parts of the book "NOTHING IS LEFT TO TELL—The Fieldnotes of Jacinta Emilia Cosas", Emanuel Almborg will present part of his recent work. In the summer of 2010, he and a group of eleven people, strangers of varying ages and backgrounds, traveled together to a small island off the coast of Sweden. Their mission was to build a wooden structure over the course of their stay on the island without speaking and without any plan or blueprint. The project was inspired by his earlier research into an experimental building project in Hackney, London investigated in his work The Rest is Silence.
Emanuel Almborg’s presentation is an exhibition event for In the Presence of Multiple Possibilities, curated by MA Curating Contemporary Art students at the Royal College of Art: Hannah Conroy, Cicely Farrer, Ellen Greig, Juste Kostikovaite, Galit Mana, Nicholas Warner and Sophie Williamson, and is generously supported by Wysing Art Centres’ Escalator Programme and Arts Council England, in collaboration with French Riviera.
