A small publication based around the 'My Home is my Museum' project, which looks at the personal treasured objects that reside in our homes and from which we create our personal narratives.
Includes DVD. Catalogue for a conference in Vercelli and Turin in November 2010, Affective Archives. The catalogue gathers project documents, manifestos and contracts, open calls, addresses to the speakers and self-reflective essays, besides all the abstracts of papers and a selection of images gleaned from the spectatorial documentation that was specifically encouraged.
Exhibition of selected objects from the Cuming Museum collection, including the Lovett Collection of Superstitions. Modern Witchcraft is an exhibition, curated by Juan Bolivar, at the ASC gallery (London) that could also be called ancient and modern.
British Library Sound Archive recording and documentation of Potentials of Performance events (26-27 October 2012). This third themed year of the Performance Matters project features a vibrant series of commissions exploring and exploding the dialogue as a potential format for thinking through and testing possible futures. Of Things in Motion and Things at Rest sets thoughts and actions in motion on the stage in a path towards a speculative performance encounter with the realm of the nonhuman and the secret lives held within it. Through sonic exploration of mundane objects, we aim to highlight how existent ideas of performative agency can be re-applied and re-thought with and through objects.

“’Taking Liberties’ deals with subconscious fears. She uses video, photography, objects and installation to convey how people are affected by life experiences. This body of work is a direct response to the artist’s personal experience of illness and references the martyred, executed, tortured body.This installation evokes the fear of the unknown, while simultaneously concealing the pain and fear of the sufferer.”
6th October 8:30pmApproximating the Art of Stuart ShermanRobin DeaconToynbee StudiosThis performance is centred around a series of re-enacted performances based on the works of the late American artist Stuart Sherman (1945 – 2001), a seminal though underexposed figure in the history of performance art. Described as “the Buster Keaton of linguistics”, his performances involved complex manipulations of objects that explored time, place, language and meaning. This piece will explore the conundrum of Sherman’s methodology through Robin Deacon’s transcription and physical re-enactment of the artist’s performances based on the original documentation.
