Performing Idea Dialogue Project: In Silence

Artist/Author: Tim Etchells, Graeme Miller | Reference: D2104 | Type: DVD

Performance Matters: Performing Idea Dialogue ProjectIn Silence – a conversation with Graeme MillerTim Etchells and Graeme MillerEtchells’ research project In Silence convenes a series of encounters with experts and professionals whose daily work and life practice leads them to an interest and investment in silence. Silence – death to the comedian, transcendence to the priest, a right in the eyes of the law – is after all not the negative space of speech but rather a complex piece of social communication, which functions in contexts as a statement, as transitional state (instrumental route to something) and indeed as a goal or objective all of its own. In a linked set of videotaped interviews Etchells will explore the diversity and complexity of silence as it is constructed and read, investigating both its utility and its blankness, as it is deployed and broken in different situations. Tim Etchells has begun his weblog for In Silence.

Performing Idea: Performative Writing

Artist/Author: Helene Cixous, Adrian Heathfield, Hugo Glendinning | Reference: D2104 | Type: DVD

Performance Matters: Performing Idea – Performative Writing8th October 3.00-7.30pm (not 7th as stated on disk)Toynbee StudiosWith: Hélène Cixous (on video), Matthew Goulish, Adrian Heathfield and Peggy PhelanNew forms of writing on and around contemporary art and performance have emerged in recent years, alongside the emergence of the artist as cultural critic and curator. These forms of writing often problematize the notion of critical distance, deploying creative, dialogic and autobiographical strategies to engage with the multiple affects of the artwork. To what extent may critical thinking and writing be an art form? Speakers will examine the histories, limits and possibilities of the forms of ‘performative writing’, the dynamics of the performing idea.This session on Performative Writing will also comprise a preview of Trashing Performance, the second themed year of Performance Matters, with contributions from Oreet Ashery, Mel Brimfield, Gavin Butt, Dominic Johnson and Bird La Bird.

Performance Matters, Performing Idea – Living Archives6th OctoberLiving Archives 3:00-7:30pmToynbee StudiosWith: Anne Bean, Rose English, Hannah Hurtzig, Janez Jan a and Heike Roms Gripped by a kind of ‘archive fever’, contemporary art and culture is driven by the desire to document, store and preserve. The archive is now a vast global edifice, crossing cultures and forms and reaching further and further into the past. Fleeting exchanges and moments are everywhere evidenced in contemporary art’s multiple but unstable papers, artefacts and traces. But what happens to the life of art in its archival forms? What is the archive doing with performance, performers with the archive? Speakers will address the relation between artists and the archival drive, the artist’s experiences and body as a kind of living archive.
