About the book
Cut/copy as a secession from site-specificity

A literary approach to the dichotomy of an original and its copy is needed here. Site-specificity is questioned, as well as the increasing demand of tailored art practices providing institutions and administrations.
No precise orders will be given regarding the site-specificity question, so the epicentrum of this experiment is a consideration of a larger totality, profoundly linked to the contemporary art practices and structures in the European emerging scene nowadays.

The long term art production processes in the oeuvre of an artist, or even the artist seen as a factory/company are questions that lay deeply in the concepts previously enunciated: original/copy.

KOPIOITU creates a double exhibition, a mirroring situation or a splitting divergent show between Helsinki and Brussels. The double negative production: twice the same, but not exactly; two copies where you won’t find an original; being indexed twice in a couple of debutant archives defines each copy of the show, the available mediums will enable the content.
