Vacant Possession

"It was an exhibition at Cabinet Gallery in 2016, a formerly unrealized proposal, which caused John Knight and I to descend into his filing cabinets, where not in haste we brought a number of unmade ideas, brilliant and uncirculated as they say of certain coins, nearly all out on the table".—RS

Robert Snowden takes as his starting point the occasion of John Knight's Vacant Possession exhibition at Cabinet London in 2016. The text becomes an enquiry into the unrealised projects in the archive of the artist, and a reflection on the nature of the unmade, of memory and material evidence.
