Live art, by its very nature, is ephemeral. After it has happened it takes on another life: in audience anecdotes, reviews, video clips, and photographs. However, a number of artists are actively engaged in this process: they make decisions about the afterlife of their work, and mould the shape of these anecdotes.

Documentation is fallible: it can never fully represent a live work. The artists in this exhibition embrace this separation between primary and secondary forms, this room for manoeuvre; their documentation doesn’t necessarily favour authenticity and evidence over memory and imagination in the creation of a legacy for a live piece.

 

Curated by Holly Rumble, an Escalator Performing Arts artist, and co-founder of other/other/other.
