1 1 1/2 2
May 14-June 1, 2011
In 1, 1 1/2, 2, the space will be used as a theater, art gallery, and screening room simultaneously. The show explores the relationship between live events, performances, everyday objects, and their photographic documents. These photographic documents are then used as the source material for the creation of new social interventions. Performances become images. Images become books. Books become films. As these works exist in a constant cycle of use, the document becomes both an archive and a directive for new events. 1, 1 1/2, 2 is a culmination of a one year investigation, which explores the use of numerical systems to dictate social dynamics and personal relationships. The social relationships in this project being 1: the individual, 1 1/2: the individual and remnants or absence of another, and 2: the couple, the pair, or the double.
