Dénes Farkas. Evident in Advance
The exhibition was created for the Estonian Pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale and it is accompanied by a catalogue.
The exhibition by the post-conceptualist artist Dénes Farkas is like an imaginarium created using contemporary language. According to Daniele Monticelli, Evident in Advance is a reminder that places also exist outside of language where things can be experienced and shown, but not said or explained. The exhibition is comprised of repetitions of fragments of the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein's only architectural project, in photos, in books and as spatial objects. The words, sentences and passages in the exhibition are derived from the book The World As I Found It, a fictional biography of Wittgenstein, Bertrand Russell and G. E. Moore by Bruce Duffy. Where these massive and dissenting repetitions lead viewers depends on the viewers themselves. Sometimes everything is clear in advance.
