archival beach

A walk-in diagram — a spatial hybrid between exhibition, cinema and stage.

A movement profile from 30 years of choreography and action. A medial infrastructure of performative platform, pinboards, screens, listening and viewing stations—loaded and performed each evening from a new and different point of view. As an installation and an exhibition, “archival beach” unfurls an experientially accessible network of relationships among themes, references, persons and influences. As a concept and spatial diagram, it is a transferrable model for a dynamic archive of artistic work.

Embedded in this on three days is “organic display – poles apart,” Purucker’s performance about the terrain of his work between dissolving and gaining the human body.

Organized as a score for voice, “organic display – poles apart” runs two contrary trains of thought and bodily practices around a center that has been left empty. On the one side, there is the reduction of the human being and the person to the brain (transplant medicine). On the other side stands a practice such as bodybuilding, which aims for mass and bodily growth through enormous effort. Both strategies miss their mark, i.e. the body, and ultimately represent the extreme antitheses of one and the same fleeing: away from the body.
