Research Pavilion #3 Infolab presents a selection of the outcomes of the Research Pavilion project, hosted by Uniarts Helsinki, that was realised during 2018-2019 in Helsinki and in context of the Venice Biennale.
Artistic research inhabits different spaces: the fields, the archives, the messy studios, spaces of negotiation and collaboration, many kinds of labs as well as spaces of representation, such as publications and exhibitions. Sometimes these spaces are incongruent and imply different modes of activity. If one wants to wear the right-hand glove in the left hand, one must turn it inside out – or be satisfied with the misfit.
The Research Pavilion #3 Infolab at Exhibition Laboratory turns a new side out of the artistic research processes cultivated by the Research Cells in the frame of Research Pavilion #3. We will explore the display mode of infolab and expose senses of research evolving from the cellular logic of Research Pavilion #3.
Research Pavilion #3 used a different kind of curatorial logic. The project did not start with a well-defined narrative. Instead, the narrative was articulated and developed during a series of Assemblies in which members of the cells participated. In this concluding seminar, the research cells will critically evaluate their ecology of practice and the cellular method of the Research Pavilion #3 project.
