31 Mar 2014

6.30pm to 8.30pm

David Toop & Rie Nakajima present:
In their conversation for OTO Broadcast on Resonance FM, Rie Nakajima and David Toop talked about events as sculpture, the duration of objects and the weight of actions. Sculpture is an experience that proposes a strategy, working to subvert the routines of performance as entertainment, lecture as information, literature fixed to the page, the conventions of duration, the direction of light and occupation of a space. Does the sculptor have to be present, or make things? Always end with a question?
Sculptors for SCULPTURE 3 will include: Charles Hayward, Jennifer Allum, Lore Lixenberg, Anton Lukoszevieze, Daniel Jackson, Adam Bohman, Pierre Berthet, Edwina Ashton, Rie Nakajima and David Toop.
Q. What is a Sculpture?
  1. Any event that defines itself from the environment and within time is a Sculpture.
  2. You can place your Sculpture in any part of the space except for those that are forbidden by external forces.
  3. Please choose the duration of your Sculpture (between 5 minutes and 15 minutes). This can be approximate for your own purposes but please be specific when you tell us the duration.
  4. If your Sculpture lasts for longer than the time you have chosen then you may find that the next Sculpture overlaps with yours. Please don’t be alarmed by this.
  5. Please give a name to your Sculpture.
  6. Please tell us the duration of your Sculpture now. Please tell us if you have any special requirements. Thank you for contributing a Sculpture.
