Raking the Trace: Language in the Garden of Absurdist Transformation

 

Air (work in progress)

 

In my research project Raking the Trace: Language in the Garden of Absurdist Transformation I look at articulation in the original sense of the word as ‘jointed’ (ἐναρθρος) and opposed to ‘disjointed’ in order to find transformations of meaning. I write short fictions and make videos and audio recordings or text-based performances combined with sculpture. Moving across the registers of visual art and writing, I question whether language is a character, what roles this character takes on in a visual art context, and if the materiality of language is tragic.
