ROOM 11 (Virtually Real)
Guttormsgaards Arkiv, Sørum, Norway
May 21 — 29, 2022
ROOM 11 (Virtually Real) is the final iteration of Sean Snyder’s travelling exhibition trilogy ROOM 11.
Room 11 was a rather inconspicuous little room at The National Gallery of Norway presenting 69 works. In February 2018, the artist spent several days in the room, meticulously cataloguing the exhibit. Observing the behavior of museum visitors photographing art with their smartphones or digital cameras, the artist noted that none of the artworks displayed in the room conformed to any standard screen format. Through a series of artistic operations Snyder has reconstructed the no-longer existing museum space as an informational entity, reusing the works' initial presentation and technical details and projecting them as a mapped memory.
