Intersecting Travelogues

Wandering through Practices and Archaeologies of Space, Place and Image 

 

This exposition presents the moving image elements of the doctoral thesis Intersecting travelogues: Wandering through practices and archaeologies of space, place and imageThe text of the thesis is built around an artistic practice that explores architectural and urban space, an exploration that is translated into time based images installed within and responding to interior architectural exhibition spaces. 

 

The work reconsiders recent concepts of media history and archaeology and relates them to specific questions raised by contemporary artistic practice:  to the architectures and spaces of audio-visual presentation, to an archaeology of the city, to the mobile spectator of minimal art and installation practices as it engages with the redeployment of urban space through projection technologies, text and image. It promotes the activities of a corporeal, wandering subject that engages with the spaces of media as sites of forgetting and recall.
