Dan Walsh will curate or “direct” artists Greet Billet, Jeff Gibson and Stephen Sprott as “method” artists in making a mise-en-scène, a possible scenario of “everything and nothing.” The artists will create individual works that together make a sort of stage or set to incite this discussion that, in the end, should be totally obvious and profoundly obscure.
Après tout / After All is a work in progress, an attempt to bring together and compare the states of too much and too little information. On one hand, we are bombarded by the endless choices of today’s media, while on the other we are frightened by the idea of no distractions, a vacuum-like silence that is supposed to be an ideal state of many philosophies.
