Partial Recall, 7a*11d

 

Partial Recall

Artscape Youngplace, 180 Shaw St Toronto

7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art, Toronto Canada

Fixed-Time (7a*11d, 2012) responded to the role memory plays in documenting performance art. Using oral tradition storytelling strategies I created a set of unique visual triggers that marked the space between me and the audience, using interpersonal interactions and materials including holographic glitter lips, skittles, jingle gloves, flagging tape, and a silver bear mask. Arthur Renwick documented the performance with retro-polaroid film and the photos were sold. Afterwards, unfortunately, someone stole the bear mask from my bag.

Partial Recall records the audience’s recollections of Fixed Time. Posters commemorate the bear mask theft. This in absentia work refers to the memories conjured via the shifting subjective experience of the audience, and the reality that I had one less artwork when I returned home. Rebeka Tabobondung of Muskrat Magazine will be onsite at the festival during the evening performances to record individuals for a video archive as they recall the original performance from 2 years ago in their own words.
