Extracts from a conversation occurred on Jannuary 2003 between Anna Vickery and Irene Amore on the subject
of the event / exhibition Room for Thought (held at Gasworks Gallery, London, in the summer 2001),
edited with leftovers of a talk written by Irene Amore in August 2001, during the staging of same event. ...
... A.V.: Fragments of text in both Italian and English were displayed on sheets of what I remember to be either
a laminated plastic, or paper of uniform size forming either vertical or horizontal lines that dissected the gallery wall.
This could be a play on 'interpretazion materials' that so frequently exist in the exhibitionary framework,
there was also a dominance of the colour red, and this very much reminded me of Russian constructivism.
Upon these text panels and in other spaces of the gallery were slide projections of what i deemed to be archival images
of previous works and collaborations so integral to Roberto Annecchini's practice.
I became increasingly aware of the interplay between the static nature of the text and the continuous movement
of imagery, implying not merely a documentation but a restaging or continuation of work in progress. ...
