Patrick Pound is interested in photographs of things you can’t really see.
For this exhibition, Pound responded to the specific peculiarity of presenting an exhibition that no one could attend. While the world was locked down (and locked out of the gallery), The museum of there, not there stood alone, unvisited but not unseen. The silent and empty gallery spaces were filled with a vast scatter-piece spread across the floor and walls.
This exhibition was part of PHOTO 2021’s expanded program and can now be viewed online on the venue’s website.
