FormContent show

It’s not for reading. It’s for making

For their new show at their Ridley Road gallery, FormContent asked over 30 contributors to suggest up to five book titles, according to what collecting or archiving is or might be to their understanding. The books gathered are an heterogeneous collection available for consultation at FormContent every weekend for the entire duration of the show. Swiss artist Luca Frei has especially designed the shelving system that hosts the collection, the open shelves offer open access to an archive in progress. A database of titles will be available on our website and, at the end of the two month project, a publication will follow documenting the final index of the temporary collection created at FormContent.
Far from a dusty library or a clinical reading room, FormContent will become a lively meeting point to discuss and question what might constitute a collection, how it may function and eventually what could be done with it.

A reflection on collecting and archiving with interventions by Luca Frei, Edgar Schmitz, Charlotte Moth, Guestroom, Raymond Taudin Chabot, Matteo Terzaghi & Marco Zürcher
