Five days a week for 12 weeks I will be
dedicating my time to building an archive of my stored belongings. I
will identify, organise and catalogue my life experience within this
archive, trying to make sense of who I am and where I have come from,
as a performative and documentary act.
Instability in Stability is a
practice-led research project exploring how strategies for archive
construction can be activated as a live artwork and digitally mediated
performance. The work challenges how the processes of performance,
documentation and archiving inter-relate, inviting a live virtual
audience into the private and personal space of my loft, my past and my
creative working process.
