'The Garden of Forking Paths' brings together the work of five artist-duos to consider duality, simultaneity, saturation and proliferation. Eric Bell & Kristoffer Frick present two works ('Untitled' (2007) and 'The pleasure of moving from place to place' (2008)) which affirm the fundamentally illusory nature of photography. ‘The Infinite Library’ (2007–ongoing), two books from which are presented here, is an expanding, seemingly arbitrary archive by Daniel Gustav Cramer & Haris Epaminonda inspired in part by the writings of Borges. huber.huber’s monochromatic series ‘dark grounds’ (2007-8) juxtaposes photojournalism and wildlife studies replicate the dislocation so crucial to Surrealism while offering a portentous and uncertain wilderness. Leslie Hewitt & Matt Keegan’s 'CMYK Floral' (2007) consists of the presentation of weekly monochromatic flower arrangements, corresponding in sequence with the inks used in four colour printing. Nashashibi/Skaer present eighteen photographs from the installation 'Pygmalion Workshop' (2008) inspired by the myth of Pygmalion in which he sculpts an ivory figure which is brought to life by Aphrodite to become his lover.

La exposición 'El jardín de senderos que se bifurcan' en Maisterravalbuena, Madrid, se ha prorrogado hasta el viernes 31 Julio. 'El jardín de senderos que se bifurcan' reúne la obra de cinco parejas de artistas y reflexiona sobre la dualidad, la simultaneidad, la saturación y la proliferación.
Eric Bell & Kristoffer Frick presentan dos obras ['Untitled' (2007) y 'The pleasure of moving from place to place' (2008)] que afirman la fundamentalmente ilusoria naturaleza de la fotografía. 'The Infinite Library' (2007–en curso), cuyos dos libros que se presentan aquí, es un archivo aparentemente arbitrario en expansión de Daniel Gustav Cramer y Haris Epaminonda, inspirado en parte por los escritos de Borges. La selección monocromática 'dark grounds' (2007–8) de huber.huber yuxtapone imágenes de periodismo fotográfico y estudios de la vida silvestre replicando la técnica de dislocación tan crucial para el Surrealismo. 'CMYK Floral' (2007) de Leslie Hewitt y Matt Keegan consiste en la presentación semanal de un arreglo floral monocromático, correspondiendo con la secuencia de colores utilizados en la impresión a cuatro colores – cian, magenta, amarillo y negro. Nashashibi / Skaer presentan dieciocho fotografías de la instalación 'Pygmalion Workshop' (2008) inspiradas en el mito de Pigmalión, quien se enamoró de la figura de marfil que él mismo esculpió y a la que consecuentemente Afrodita dio la vida convirtiéndose en su amante.

'Sequelism Part 3: Possible, Probable or Preferable Futures' is a project that looks into the future and at that which is yet to happen. It considers how art and the inexact arena of futurology might be utilised as a means to better comprehend, rethink, obscure, or even colonise the present. Knowledge of current and historical events often plays a role in collective foresight or prognoses of change that is yet to take place. In a similar fashion, futurology could be said to deal with memory in reverse. The project seeks to investigate how prospective visions might be generated for vastly differing reasons, offering great idealism on the one hand, or harnessing political and societal anxiety on the other.
The future is commonly manifested in popular cultural forms, including science fiction, yet how might we look beyond the present without recourse to established genres? To what extent does strategic foresight affect our understanding of the ‘now’ or the ‘when’? Is the future a culturally specific phenomenon that is inherently ‘Western’ in its own gaze and orientation? And just how accurate can we be when imagining the future? The Sequelism project addresses issues and questions such as these. Disputing illustrative organisation around a predetermined thesis, the project itself invites doubt, speculation and to-be-determined outcomes.
This is the first in a trilogy of Sequelism exhibitions, with Part 2 in 2010.
