Understanding the studio as a laboratory where phenomena - “accidents” (catastrophes or miracles)- occur, this exhibition focuses on disclosing the outcomes and manifestations of glitches and “failed” trials. Failure and success are key elements of the research practice, and sharing results, as much as process, highlights experience, learning and skills. Eliminating what is deemed to be unsuccessful provides a chance for others to commit the same mistakes, but it also discards the option for alternative interpretations of the results. This exhibition presents the gallery as a studio/exhibition space that could provide new understanding of ideas of achievement versus failures, breakdowns and breakthroughs.
