Feature story: How the serendipitous dream of 13Forest grew

PROMPT
PROMPT: 5 artists. 4 installments. 8 weeks.
 
The artists in this evolving exhibition have been allotted wall sections in which they have been asked to map out four segments in any formation they like. On opening day of the exhibition, each artist will have added one work (or grouping of works) inside one of these segments, leaving the remaining empty. As the show progresses, about every two weeks, the artists will fill another segment with additional work. Over time their respective projects will be prompted by the exhibition segments and by each other's contributions to the site.
Statement
This exhibit considers how objects can perform and respond to each other within the framework of a gallery exhibition. Here the gallery walls will cease to be static receptacles of established work, and become a site for transformation and re-imagining as artists add new work over time. This process of making and un-making of meaning is typically hidden from the public within artists' studios. Prompt is a prolonged discourse that activates the gallery walls by both the artist and the public for a continued learning experience enriched by time.
