The Museum Of Nothing’s Department of Voids was exhibited at the Black Sesame gallery in Beijing. The ongoing research project highlights the notion of absence both as a driver of an investigative creative process and as a way to infiltrate the institutional realm. Two historical transport cases, originally designed and manufactured to carry and protect valuable goods, become representatives of a bureaucratic vacuum where physical objects cease to exist. We follow the artists as they trace the origins of the cases and their efforts to understand how we relate to ‘original’ and ‘replica’ on personal, cultural and institutional levels. The installation has subsequently been acquired by the Shanghai museum SHMOG.
