Accelerated Art, Accelerated Culture UACC Panel

October 25, 2019

Chaired by Julian Jason Haladyn ( Canadian writer and independent curator)

Hilton Hotel, Quebec City

Friday, October 25, 9 am

As an iteration of my upcoming publication Undoing as Activism, this panel led presentation argues that by first unmaking that which already exists, one can slow the accelerated rate at which we think, grow, extract, produce, consume and dispose of goods. In addition to presenting personal art experimentations and reflections, the work of Peter von Tiesenhausen,Katie Patterson and Sharon Kallis will be brought forward to offer examples of art practices that resist acceleration both materially and aesthetically, demonstrating how many immaterial and material things become unmade when taking earth, the final audience and owner of all things, into account.

 

An UNTWISTING: A durational performance exploring the potential of unmaking and existing and hidden materials.

September 19, 2019

Thursday, September 19, 10 am - finished

Isabel Bader Performance Art Centre - Art & Media Lab

Kingston, Ontario

FREE EVENT

Currently pursuing a research-creation PhD in Cultural Studies and continuing to acknowledge my role as a maker, settler and consumer in the Anthropocene, "An Untwisting" is a follow-up performance to Undoing #1, a durational work where I unravelled a shrunk and damaged acrylic / wool poncho until it was beautiful piles of yarn.  These quiet gestures offer a way to explore how “unmaking” serves as a creative act and might reveal unknown potential hidden in our culture’s material excess so that we can begin to imagine design systems of production and exchange built on foundations of human care and environmental concern.

 

This more public sitting invites the viewer to be present so as to collaboratively discuss how undoing can become monumental  if we are to consider the value of human and non-human materials or view trash as an extension of our neo-colonial capitalist systems of global trade.
