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.
