Alexandru Modoi

MA Photography

The space between artworks. Alexandru Modoi is suggesting that representations of the artworks outside the galleries could efface the ordinary elements surrounding them – frames, labels, spaces, wall marks, wall colours and texture. The argument is that these elements are part of discourses and are significant for audiences. Therefore, would unveiling aspects of the display ideology disclose practices or not? Are these less visible elements part of Foucault’s order of things in the gallery? This order is concealed in the archaeological discourses, which could contain aspects of society and layered by time may represent cultural transformations. Can this discourse be made visible? What are the hidden narratives within such art institutions?
