Past exhibition at Lumiar Cité:
(A solidão seria melhor se não existissem os outros)
05.06 - 20.07.2014
Simon Thompson says: 'There is no shipping container required other than the story of 'shipping' already containing the memory of the American artist Allan Sekula spending time exploring the dockyard in Lisbon. This memory, perhaps because it wasn't my own, stayed with me, let's say - to be forgotten. In the light of this, a pragmatic arrangement has been arrived at, a kind of ship in a bottle. No idea, no desire or necessity, no impulse toward accountability ... those acts sank into circumstance. So ... how to survive the wreck of this experience?'
Simon Thompsonʼs technique of window dressing involves a 'very little but not quite nothing' caricature of it's own absence. The indiscernible removal, 180 degree rotation and return back to the original holding position of a single large tempered glass window in Lumiar Cité has been described by Thompson as "the other side of sameness" and is the result of a two-year dialogue between Thompson (Brussels) and Jürgen Bock (Lisbon).
Simon Thompson is a British artist who lives and works in Brussels.
