Tinos Quarry Platform


Online exhibition TENDING TOWARDS curated by the artist duo Dorota Gawęda & Eglė Kulbokaitė and GRUPPE collective, hosted by Tinos Quarry Platform, in partnership with Athens Museum of Queer Arts.
TENDING TOWARDS concludes with the launch of the online exhibition. Throughout the summer the project unfolded across multiple locations both virtual and actual presenting artistic research carried out in the local context of Tinos Island​. ​Mapped through the specifics of the North ​Cycladic topography but also the many arbitrary traces of online life, ​TENDING TOWARDS considered how to address the fluidity of contemporary embodiment and artistic production within. Subject to data collection mechanisms and through face or voice recognition the body is translated into text. We can no longer be understood as finite unities, but instead fluid cartographies or else distributed networks of ​corporate agency. TENDING TOWARDS opens up a conversation on where our bodies are tending towards and the potential for new trajectories.
