The Shadow of a Train/David Berridge

photos: Marianne Holm Hansen

THE SHADOW OF A TRAIN is an exhibition derived from two paragraphs by the writer Arkadii Dragomoshchenko.

The exhibition currently comprises a number of written texts developed in response to these two paragraphs and the insight that they, in some way, propose an exhibition. As well as being an exhibition in themselves, the paragraphs are also scores forming an invitation to make an exhibition, however defined.

These texts are: an exhibition plan, a script for an audio tour, a second (and possibly contradictory) exhibition plan, and an interview transcript.

All of this written material can be used as background material, made available in the space, displayed on the walls, performed aloud or pre-recorded, as deemed (in-) appropriate by the interpreters. It may lead to a show comprising a guided tour, an event, a publication, a reading room, and/or the shadow of a train. It may facilitate a show in which there is no trace of this source script.

The author will be involved or not in ways deemed appropriate by the interpreters. Further texts may be supplied.

  1. Ok… so the score was received, and it has moved on like chaffs in the wind. It has been printed on faraway printers in five different cities in several countries on two continents and a large island, and is by now being held in a cohort of unseen hands and minds. There is a group of people who are independently responding to the score through email. Some folks have been in town and know the gallery space, others have not and are imagining everything…. Next Thursday we are also getting together with a small group of people in the gallery to talk together the score, and the exhibition (thu 13.5. 6pm, you are welcome, email mirja). What will happen next? How will the life of the score be altered/extended/truncated? We will see.

    The score of the upcoming exhibition is read in two variants for DISTANCE – from a distance, for creating a distance. The first reading forms a dialogue, the second reading a three voice choreography.
