Error 404. Territories of Absence is a research exhibition that takes its title from the message received by internet users when trying to access a broken website or a corrupted page link. The “error” is seen here rather in a metaphorical sense, indicating the absence of a functional and communicational space, of information itself. The artworks included in this project deal with the idea of error, blur, glitch and absence equally in a concrete way (technical, formal, visual) and in a conceptual sense, pointing to the (im)possibility of representation, communication and bodily interaction at the border between real and virtual.
