Materials: fabric, key, record, dice, a glass, a book, a bell, a mirror, a plate, found objects at Elsewhere
An apparatus for navigating Elsewhere Museum, through expurgation and intervention. It plays off existing works made by other artists and the layered histories and unconventional structure of a museum. Made using only the materials of the museum collection, objects hide within existing works and await discovery to create new contexts. Visitors activate the latent meanings of objects and their embodied relationships to collections within a collection.
key 1 of 7. boardless - move or be moved. the path you make is the path you take.
An artist box sits among others made by artists as time capsules collecting each artist’s relationship to specific objects within the collection of Elsewhere. This one considers individual journeys and actions of future visitors and their embodied relationship to the space and collection of Elsewhere.
It contains an event score and the first key for discovering other keys. Each key prompts movement, modes of perception, and different gestures of the body.
