Notes

The second provocation for Venetian Blind project involved the continuation of the project begun in Venice by re-staging the Venice installation complete with documentation and video work and responding to a second, new provocation that allowed re-collection, re-envisioning and reflection of the ethos of the project.

Research statement

Background This exhibition consisted of work made in response to a second provocation to the Venetian blin brief set project at the European Cultural Centre (collateral exhibition at the 58th Venice Biennale 2019). The original brief involved an 9th century marble spacer set between buildings in a section of Venice which was used to set the width of the passageway and reinforce the control of the area by the Grandenigi family. The second prompt consisted of lines from Ezra Pound’s Cantos which measure time and loss, to which we responded with a palimpsest, drawn live for video, and folded back on itself. The new work speaks to the ongoing interaction of perception, memory, and imagination. Contribution This work continues the approach of in-situ performances complied on video. Our intervention back into the memory of the collaboration demonstrates the richness of creative practice research and its relation to creative practice outcomes for the community of professional practitioner, HDR students and audiences that crave in-depth and ongoing investigations into embodied affects and deep time. Significance The work continues the research and investigation begun in Venice and now folded back into the local community of practitioners. What was initiated as part of the ECC reverberates and continues to develop through the individual practices, new research, and collaborative projects, and as a case study for teaching creative collaboration. This exhibition has strong connections a new book Bridging Measures which follows on from the success of the co-authored book, Creative Measures of the Anthropocene (Palgrave 2019).
