[r] _ “installance” : che cos’è / about



host / lost

dérive / river


01. a secretly performed installation is an installance

02. an installance and its (non)action may or may not be recorded

03. yes, you can take several notes and produce and pile up documents as well

04. part of the stuff involved in the installance can be abandoned, lost —or not

05. it’s funny that : (04) + the absence of “observers” = installance

06. notes, records, documents —if any— may or may not be published

07. this webspace [now offline: installance.blogspot.com] can host one or more notes per installance

08. this webspace [now offline: installance.blogspot.com] is made for theories too. in Italian too

09. this place [now offline: installance.blogspot.com] won’t host simple installations and/or performances 

10. of course, all of the above are definitely/strongly linked to dada, surr-, fluxus, conceptual art, asemic writing


11. the trivial, the forgotten, the indefinite, et toutes les dérives may sometimes turn into installances. and, yes, the flux hosting “the lost things” may actually be a real river

12. the word & (non)action “installance”, in association with all the dépense one can put into the idea and practice, are (CC) differx: they’re not kind of brand, TM shit, etc etc. they’re anarchist stuff, take them and do what you want

maintenant, synapse_ newsletter aug 2017

I receive from Rachel Defay-Liautard news about her installation @ The Bury Museum (“The installation was commissioned by the Museum, as an accompaniment to Random Archive exhibition, an installation of the Text Art Archive, running since May 20th until August 12th”). For me it is really of great interest, so I thought to make the newsletter available here (images included): https://slowforward.files.wordpress.com/2017/08/maintenant-synapse_-newsletter-aug-17.pdf
