Abstract:

This project represents the outcome of an AHRC Small Grant for the Creative and Performing Arts. The project investigates the relationships between liveness/present and memory/past in a mediatised performance art context. The work explores the process of memorisation in relation to that of video documentation within the delivery of the piece itself, hence the title Mnemonic Present. The body of work produced is formed by 9 versions of the Video Live Installation ‘Mnemonic Present. Un-Folding’, which was partially drawn from Derrida’s notion of ‘supplementarity’ and Suddendorf’s psychological studies (as reported in related publications). New collaborations for research include: TaPRA, 2007; PSFG, ATHE Conference, New Orleans, 2007. The developmental aspects of this project include collaborations with Blaker, Andrea Lissoni, Kelina Gotman. Additional outcomes emerging from the practice include publications in which time in performer-audience relationships and the notion of a ‘performative self’ in mediatised performance are considered. The placing of the documentation in the work itself, addressing the documentation of liveness, continuously replaced in the present of its production and reception, contributes significantly to ongoing debates on practice based research. These include Performance as Research In Practice Conferences and publication, Bristol University, 2001-2006.
