D+T Project Gallery is thrilled to present another thematic exhibition that brings together artist from various horizons. This time, Historiology / Archaeography broadly explores the idea of archaeology. The title considers the notion of an indefinite border between various ideas, such as accumulation and sedimentation, classification, artefact, fake, ready made, history, sociology, politics, environment, performance, etc. Thus the exhibited artworks refer to the notion of archaeology in a direct way or as a metaphorical reference.
 
Historiology / Archaeography tends to point out the way an object can exist in the nowadays global post-consumer context. Also, the process of musealisation is at the core of the project; through the variety of artworks it clearly questions the course where the idea prevails over pure aesthetical values. Consequently a strong resistance towards pure aestheticisation is traceable within the featured works. Furthermore, references to other concepts are to be mentioned, including process, context, reality/fiction, utopias, etc.

Dion usually collects information and objects. His custom-made stamp personalizes various archives with a museographical purpose. Facing each other, Gates and Prinz poetically state the concept of resistance. Gates constructs an abstract image with decommissioned hoses often seen when dispersing crowds. The Berliner Prinz creates with handcrafted leather a nostalgic image of a disappearing wall. A handmade wall by Argote like a fake artifact raises the idea of separation, protection or suggests a public place where people can express their opinion. Peterman has a more sociological practice. The recycling process is at the core of his works with public installations and objects such as the series of granaries inspired by old ceramics from the Ming Dynasty. In a futuristic way, Ervinck employs 3D printing that transforms plastic into precious material installed on a pedestal. Bajo's framed wrapper features superposed gestures left by framers. These records remind the resistance towards the working process and the ideas of the Situationnist movement. From another perspective, supposedly found material covers a silkscreened image by van Woert.
