Archival Encounters

Performance (15"00) with trolley, overhead-projector, transparent slides, A4 hanging folders, A2 posters.

Through short observations, a visitor tells her day in an archetypical archive. The visitor meets the archivist, named Susanne who shows her around. Yet it is not the first time the visitor goes to an archive, and she keeps her eye open to the dynamics and paradoxes happening around her. The visitor experiences the archive as an entanglement of different meanings, surviving in a confused condition, balancing between the dynamics of consultation and conservation.
