You can say: itâ€™s about objectification, fetishization, isolation and reification; itâ€™s about fundraising, budget control and its explosion; itâ€™s about symbolic values and logistic costs; it tries to make sense of a constellation; itâ€™s about hanging, labeling and having a walk in a defined space; itâ€™s about scenic and decorative practices; it deals with relationships between artists (alive or dead), curators, organizers, artworks and audience; itâ€™s about you looking at an item with the desire to touch it but you canâ€™t, or mustnâ€™t; itâ€™s about dealing with ignorance, interpretation, historicizing and constant actualization. Itâ€™s about the ephemeral, and fixing, mounting and documenting, a fast and slow reception; itâ€™s about discursive assemblage and material based meaning; itâ€™s about being there before it disappears again.
