In 1995 Chisenhale Gallery hosted a touring exhibition by the artist Absalon (1964-93), featuring four of his Cellules – full-scale architectural models of idealised living units. Absalon died shortly after the exhibition opened at Musée d’Art Moderne, Paris in 1993 and before it travelled to Chisenhale.Law re-composed text from the archived correspondence relating to the exhibition – documents, faxes, press cuttings and educational workshop material – to form a text piece, a performance and this online commission. He addresses the elusiveness of Absalon and his work, exploring the limitations of language and the disjointed nature of communication through the partial accounts of events surrounding the exhibition, found in the archive.
