Anarchy of Silence 2010 Site responsive, installation, video and performance. States of Readiness,Landguard Fort, UK.
Curated by Caroline Wright
The work for this exhibition, which draws its themes from both historical and contemporary issues of preparation, anticipation and waiting, I propose to concentrate on specific concepts/notions of Defence and Protection referencing military and civil defence. The proposed works will engage directly with the fundamental reasons for the establishment of the Fort and the Geneva Conventions.
The installation, video and performance Anarchy of Silence is a site specific work created solely for the exhibition State of Readiness and takes its themes from the fundamental reasons for the establishment of Landguard Fort and the Geneva Conventions. Both of which were set up as a means of military and civil defense and protection, and in parallel time lines have been through processes of amendment owing to the changing nature of military warfare.
By drawing comparisons of the two both past and present through performance and installation the work aims at highlighting our own personal vulnerability and associated implications of world frailty and vulnerability.
