take the edge off (2017), HD video documentation of installation, 7'35, in collaboration with Samuel Rodgers and Violeta Ivanova
take the edge off was an exhibition comprised of new site-responsive work that had been formed collaboratively. Using the notion of the 'film set', the exhibition explored the idea of a constructed site becoming a space for discussion and performance. Through informal performative actions taking place throughout the opening, the sets change and the exhibition alters, considering the space we resided in together as an amorphous and experiential 'thing'.
Central to our discussions whilst working together was the notion of 'membrane' (linking together our practices both conceptually and in relation to process), as well as a thematic of communication (how spoken language oscillates between concept and affect, or the experiential).
Produced during an artist residency at Salzamt Atelierhaus, Austria.
