Sorry for the delay. I promised more Channel Surf commentary and then got caught up in a whirlwind of change this week. More about that in a later post. For now I thought I would show you my documentation of the anarchive process at G101 in Ottawa.
What is an anarchive? That is open to interpretation but for us it was a kind of devolving from the tight unit we had become on the water, a reinterpretation of the processes and materials that had kept us going while on and off the water. For some it was access to the tools that could reveal the documentation they had been performing throughout the event. For others it was a grasping at the familiarity of objects and reforming them to create something new and engaging.
THE ANARCHIVE was discussed through group activity before we got back to land and the process of gallery eventing. There was talk of chaos, disorder, narrative, alternative forms of being, lying, recording, documenting, anarchy, missing pieces, motion, unpacking, flow and responding to each other.
If you are in Ottawa go by G101 and take a look for yourself. If not, here are some images to help with the imagining.
Thanks to all of the participants whose work is shown here. In the spirit of collaboration I have chosen not to include individual names and designations but please feel free to contact me for documentation images for your own use. xxx
