Exist documentation: description of creative works in the International Live Art Event "exist in 08"
Hadley, Bree J. (2008) Exist documentation: description of creative works in the International Live Art Event "exist in 08". [Textual Work]
The works that come together under the banner of Exist in 08 invoke themes of identity, memory, history and legacy, and human exchanges across the boundaries of times, spaces, nations and disciplines. What legacy will Exist in 08 leave in the individual and collective memory of artists, scholars and audiences? In the past decade, scholars of live art have become increasing absorbed by discussion of the archive, and the questions of what remains of artists’ transient, time-based interventions in the aesthetic, social and political sphere. Today, the archive is framed as active, and productive – a fertile repository of records that actively reach out to their own future role in an as-yet-unauthored archaeology of practice. Photos, texts, footage and artefacts of live art practices stimulate productive new encounters, productive new interpretations, allowing the exchanges that take place at an event like Exist in 08 to extend beyond the event itself, and inform the ongoing development of the artists, the artform, and scholarly research into the artform. As part of the activities at Exist in 08, Dr Bree Hadley leads a Queensland University of Technology funded research project that develops DVD and other documentation of some of the streams of activity at the festival.
