Abstract (English)

As much as possible given the time and space allotted is a unique collection-based exhibition. Over a period of six weeks, a team of students and technicians will sequentially remove as many art works as possible from the Gallery’s storage vault to install them, in the same systematic order, in the Gallery’s exhibition areas. Once the Gallery is saturated, or the mid-way point of the exhibition has been reached – whichever comes first – the project then reverses its strategy and begins to remove the works from the Gallery and return each item to its original place within the storage vault, leaving the Gallery in its former “clean” state, thus marking the end of the project.

Résumé

As much as possible given the time and space allotted est une exposition organisée à même la collection de la Galerie. Une équipe de techniciens et d’étudiants se proposent de retirer méthodiquement autant d'œuvres que possible de la réserve de la Galerie sur une période de six semaines, et de les installer dans les aires d’exposition. Lorsque les murs de la Galerie seront recouverts, les œuvres seront alors successivement retournées à l'emplacement qu'elles occupaient dans la réserve, laissant la Galerie revenir à son état de « dénuement » initial, ce qui marquera la fin du projet.
