About the Exhibition
The exhibition focuses on strategies of the artist as researcher, highlighting the importance of archives and archiving as records of history, and as evolving spaces for inquiry and discourse.
As a beginning, rather than an end, the living archive extends the notion of its application beyond a preservational position; rethinking the power structures of the archival system and its presumed authority as an institution of itself.
Beyond Codex: Living Archives is a meditation on the crossing and diverging pathways between personal narratives and public records, as well as the notion of accessibility within organized systems. From family records to online indexes, Beyond Codex includes works that challenge the conventions of publishing and archiving, while generating needed space for often-times under-recognized cultural heritage and texts.
