Callum Devlin’s exam project at Enjoy

Press Release – Enjoy Public Art Gallery
Callum Devlin
6 – 23 September
Opening: Wednesday 6 September,5:30pm

As a constructed space, the exam room is exhausting in its banality. Stripped bare of any visual information or distractions, it operates as a collectively occupied void—a battleground for the interrogation of memory, an exercise in justification and communication.

Taking cues from a range of para-educational, philosophical and political narratives, UNTITLED EXAMINATION PROJECT is an exercise in self-identification. As a candidate, you will be invited to sit an hour-long examination where your degree of self-actualisation and understanding is assessed. Your results will be confidentially graded against a rigorous and objective marking schedule, and returned.
