This exhibition at Benaki Museum presents 8 site-specific installations for emerging artists who explore various materials (gesso, recycled or handmade paper, garbage and dust, weaving and sewing techniques, use of food condiments and natural fibres, etc) through the philosophy of recycling and handmade process. The exhibition design follows 4 main principles: 1) to meet a very low budget (30.000 Euros) and a quick assembling of the exhibition (5 working days). Both are met by the decision to aim at a rough and rusty aesthetic quality, which reflects the content and philosophy of the exhibition, as well as to work with standardized parts and pieces. 2) To present each exhibit in an autonomous unit with standard dimensions 2,5m W x 2,5m D X 2,5m H. The unit’s fourth vertical wall leans on floor, creating the entrance and taking on it the information about the exhibit. 3) Each unit presents variations. In Slow Down Rooms, artists can change, if they want, the height as well as of elements of the unit, but not of its footprint. Thus, more variations of the unit appear. Materials: recyclable floating screed, chip-board, ecological white paint.
