Sorry Archive is pleased to present And the Villagers Never Liked You Anyway, an archaeological excavation of a 10’x10’ bed of dirt overseen by Dr. Ulf Hueber. The space is gridded into 10 plots, each with its own curator. The plots act as experimental test pits* for heterogeneous creative practices.

Exhibitions are historical sites: they reveal with varying degrees of transparency the events and personalities that produced them. A wide range of curatorial perspectives are situated here within the same set of physical constraints. The objects that emerge are not emblems. They are substances articulated over time and forced into tight quarters, and their materiality cannot be ignored.

Sorry Archive’s scientific approach to this exhibition aims to reorient viewers in their relationship to art objects. Viewers become excavators, grounded in the real, negotiating strata of cause and effect. Yet they are faced with an array of microcosmic histories and impossible mythologies. There can be no endpoint of knowledge gathered from this paradoxical dig, where factual time is altogether disturbed. New works fall into seeming ruin. Gaps in knowledge pock all surfaces with expanses of the unknowable. This site is populated with artifacts of the future, a reverse archaeology of the present. ▩

* A small excavation unit dug to learn what the depth and character of the stratum might be, and to determine more precisely which strata contain artifacts and other material remains.

Reticulant Matter

I participated in this collaborative performance led by Kara Schmidt on May 4, where we used yarn to create a tensile "structure within a structure", interacting with passersby to highlight the daily negotiations and complications of traversing public space.
