Trace: Displaced at the National Review of Live Art

...A free-standing structure [plasterboard on wood frame] will be built. This will be a scaled replication of the ‘domestic’ TRACE install-action artspace situated in an inhabited terrace house in Cardiff.
During each day for a period of 3 hours [16.00 - 19.00] the artists will engage in an ongoing dialogue with the installation, navigating it’s physicality and making interventions upon its structure.
The public will have full access throughout to experience the ‘live’ activity and the resulting installation/evidence and residual traces.
Simultaneous reportage will be created during the daily activity. Text/reports will be posted and an information table will be available throughout.
The seemingly left-over or discarded matter from performance activity is offered up for contemplation and reflection. In bringing together these discreet elements one becomes aware of a certain unity of practice; a living archive centred on process, events and experiences. ‘traces’ that embody that fragile quality where the object itself is imbued with the performance that created it....
