Again, A Time Machine is a Book Works touring exhibition in five parts.
For Part three two Performative talks take place at The Showroom, the first Archival Pleasure, and the second, Future Orientation.
Sarah Pierce's work considers the archive as historical material and collective input, a source of potential slippage and dissent – evidence of how we speak of the political in art. For Again, A Time Machine she will develop a body of work drawn from audio recordings of talks and events programmed throughout the exhibition, culminating in a solo show in April 2012. For the first event, Archival Pleasure, a series of proposals from Sarah Pierce in the form of archival fragments form the basis of an improvised dialogue on the archive with Paul Buck and Melissa Gronlund.
This is an event to accompany the project Again, A Time Machine.
Born in Connecticut in 1968, Pierce is an artist based in Dublin. Since 2003 she has used the term 'The Metropolitan Complex' to describe her work, which demonstrates her broad understanding of cultural work, articulated through various working methods, involving performances, interviews, archives, exhibitions and self-publishing.More
