The multi-layered project with which GAMPA enters into a new phase of its existence explores the possibilities of time-space narration in the context of one of the most iconic structures in Pardubice: the Automatic Mills. More than an exhibition, this is an artistic environment – architecture inside architecture. The narrative is focused into three chapters: reverbation, shift, transformation.
The reverbation chapter explores changed urban acoustics in the context of the transformation of cities, as well as voices of the public and various communities in public spaces. Shift is a chapter about work, its transformation, changes in priorities – it is about labour in the context of factory shifts as well as about the value and valuation of artistic labour. The transformation chapter addresses not only the transformation of the site itself, but especially the transformation of institutions.
