New identities dream life into intermediate possibility as two imagined lives are expressed in a single day.
From 00:00 to 00:00
From first breath to last.
Two bodies, one female, one male, are monuments to the savages of time.
The expansive loop of hands, infinitely sweeping across the clocks surface.
The big hand leads the little hand.
Decisive actions become site for rhizomatic potential until relationships become contested.
Marks will be made.
Promises will be broken.
Relationships will build then burst.
This is arrested space.
We could do nothing and we would perish yet we will eat and sleep and make clean what was unclean and we will count each moment as if it were our own. Our last.

For the MPA-B 2015, MOMENTUM reprises its month-long program of Performance Sundays entitled WORKS ON PAPER.

WORKS ON PAPER inverts classic assumptions of paper as a medium, inviting performance artists to approach paper not as a static blank canvas, but as a dynamic source of conceptual and performative possibility. WORKS ON PAPER III generates a dialogue between performance artists confronted with the challenge of working with paper, and artists whose medium is paper, given the challenge of working with performance.

Taking place every Sunday in May (3, 10, 17, 24 & 31) from 3-6pm, WORKS ON PAPER III takes the form of a cumulative series of performances – with each subsequent performance engaging with the artefacts resulting from the works preceding it in the series. By generating a cumulative, site-specific series through the appropriation of the remains of one another’s performances, the artists in WORKS ON PAPER challenge and reinvigorate the notion of the stationary, disengaged exhibition. What, they ask, is the life of performance after the event concludes? Whether engaging in durational performance, instruction pieces, physical and social architecture, live performance in tandem with other media, sculpture, dance, poetry, or text, these artists challenge expectations of working with the traditional medium of paper in real-time.

Each performance is documented on video, and on 1-28 June 2015, MOMENTUM will exhibit these videos alongside the artefacts in a gallery exhibition.
