Para-Sites is an alternative exhibition project where given modes of production, circulation, and consumption are “hijacked” or re-appropriated for creative purposes. It is a network of distributed practices that operate in the same time frame with a common theoretical and tactical approach. This project starts from the realization that there is a significant lack of platforms and opportunities to show and promote nonconventional and noncommercial creative practices and that such practices can better encounter participants and build a network without relying on the traditional gallery system and its physical and economic constraints.
The shadows of the past is a remake of the shadows remowed or destroyed monuments and memorials could have cast, and still cast in collective memory. The image is made in water and gel lasts just short time. It is an ongoing project of art in urban space.
