PROJECTPROJECTS
residency, project and exhibition at
The Showroom, London
March - April 2008

projectprojects projectprojects involved a combined project/residency/exhibition at The Showroom for an eight-week period. Approached as an expanded studio, The Showroom became a site within which to develop structures, furnishings and instruments. These enabled different engagements with others across a number of levels. The project involved a multi-layered clustering of a series of forms and activities – some architectural, some musical, some material, some collaborative, some improvisational, some sculptural.

projectprojects became a situation for hosting and generating a series of one-to-one collaborations with a range of people from Melbourne and London – taking place within the company of, and in response to, a multiplicity of informal structures and transient sculptural constructions. These collaborations involved sound recordings and improvisations, developing sequences of movement, collaborative building processes, the generation of a publication, and the planning and building of a makeshift raft to navigate down the Regents Canal in London’s East End.

projectprojects emerged from a practice that experiments with producing situations for multiple forms of engagement, with activating different degrees of audience, and with art as a 'proliferating event' – an activity that is partial, process-oriented and context-specific. In the past this approach has generated installations/situations saturated by a multiplicity of live elements, material relations and organisational formations.
