Abstract

GardenShip and State embraces a form of radical curating that seeks to address issues which, due to their scale and complexity, are inherently difficult to represent. In his essay, “Are Some Things Unrepresentable?” Jacques Rancière scrutinizes the challenges inherent within representation. He locates these challenges in the aesthetic and political limitations embedded within the contemporary image. The pursuit of depicting and questioning problems that are as intermingled and multifaceted as global warming and colonization must address these limitations head-on. This opens up an important conversation whereby issues of representation within contemporary culture must be considered alongside notions of documentary, critical curating and new ways of displaying images together.
