KOPIOITU proposes the notion of cut/copy as a secession from site-specificity. A literary approach to the dichotomy of an original and its copy is needed here. Site-specificity is questioned, as well as the increasing demand of tailored art practices providing institutions and administrations. No precise orders will be given regarding the site-specificity question, so the epicentrum of this experiment is a consideration of a larger totality, profoundly linked to the contemporary art practices and structures in the present emerging European scene. KOPIOITU creates a double exhibition, a mirroring situation or a splitting divergent show between the galleries Sic (Helsinki) and Komplot (Brussels). This is double negative production: twice the same, but not exactly. Participating artists include: Félicia Atkinson, Olli Keränen, Bitsy Knox, Maija Luutonen , Kalle Leino, Konsta Ojala, Jurgen Ots, Benoit Platéus, Sauli Sirviö, Timo Vaittinen and Laura Wesamaa. Curated by: Sonia Dermience, Alberto García del Castillo and Aura Seikkula. Published by Shelter Press (St Martin).
