DING DONG DAWDLE

CO-HABITAT LABORATORY

All are welcome to join these experimental sessions, offering time & space to explore the landscape/environment of the HUB and its surroundings. We will focus on somatic experience & sensory perception. These dawdles are a way to familiarize and inhabit the space, collaborating through guided improvisation.

ARTISTIC RESEARCH: FOUR APPROACHES.
IV/IV – COLLABORATION, EROGATION, SURROGATION

MODERATED DISCUSSION

The ‘Erogate/Surrogate Performance Series’, which premiered last year during MPA­B 2013, is an on­going experiment where artists are asked to trust other artists to perform their work on their behalf. The protocol is simple: in the months, weeks or days leading up to the performance, ‘erogates’ share their work with their appointed ‘surrogates’ while both sides keep journals of their processes and detailed records of all their negotiations and exchanges.

Although such a curatorial device allows ‘erogates’ to be as open they want to be to having their piece composed, re­composed and/or de­composed by their ‘surrogates’ – who in turn can decide what and how much to offer and risk for what at the end of the day might still be referred to as “somebody else’s work” – the project has revealed the possibility that ‘erogation’ and ‘surrogation’ are not two separate activities or roles, but rather two different stages of all creative processes. ‘Erogacy’ as a starting point – rather than as  ‘the origin’ – and ‘surrogacy’ as the act that keeps it performing, thus making it anew. Surrogation becomes erogation becomes surrogation becomes erogation…

Using the E/S approach along with other MPA projects that encourage us to think about artistic practice as research, the final discussion of the Artistic Research series will center around collaborative practices. Co­labouring on making art, including the support structure that sustains it, is accepted as an integral part of performance. But how it makes it is as key as what it makes. There will be a moderated panel, the discussion will invite an ongoing and engaged participation by all those present, to explore the implications – aesthetic, social, political – of collaborative strategies for how we do research by and with art­making.
