A Field of Possible Finds: interconnected sites in (re)performing

Set in the material field of Athens, Greece, a performed work weaves across different registers of time to build a collection of scenes made from fragments. Drawing on fieldwork, memory, embodied experience and an architectural essay, the extracts become sites of entangled narratives and interpretation, simultaneous collapse and construction. Here, objects connected to passed events (re)perform an ever-unfolding present in mass tourism and the trap of history.

Collapsing environments in performance and sculpture is the work of artist Luce Choules. Through a spatial enquiry encompassing writing, image and sound they use fieldwork, language and live event to explore precarity and temporality in a radical rethinking of our time on this planet. Their works deal with ecological precarity, accelerated change, extractivism, post-industrial tourism, social movement, aggregate structures, material and immaterial transformation, temporal loop, and shape-shifting. They often work in trans-disciplinary dialogue with others and contribute to environmental and academic symposia on the subject and object of fieldwork. Luce leads workshops and fieldwork programmes, is an elected Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in London and founded the itinerant artist network TSOEG.org. 

The event is open to all but please register via the link above.

The Archaeology-Heritage-Art Research Network examines the varied ways in which archaeology, heritage and art converge across a broad range of concepts and practices, from artistic interventions in the museum space to archaeological interpretations which deploy and take inspiration from contemporary art.

The AHA 2022 PROGRAMME: INTERDISCIPLINARY METHODOLOGIES is supported with a grant from the Centre for Critical Heritage Studies.
