Proposal for Spectres of Evaluation – Artist Presentations
The three independent works to be presented by the Old Folks Association at Spectres of Evaluation will include:
Sean Curham – Performance event Stand up lie down exploring the idea that there is a proximity to art in the most humble activities, in this case standing up and lying down; and that such examples evade exclusivity being activities made (almost) invisible through familiarity.
Mark Harvey – Performance event Hand Hold Job testing out notions of productive labour around the site while holding hands with the artist and performing other modes of physical contact with public participants (where everyone is invited to join in).
Danny Butt and Alex Monteith will work with their collective Local Time http://www.local-time.net to explore traditional water sources of the region and engage with custodians of those sources to make appropriate drinking water available for visitors to the site. This extends their project Wai Ariki from the 5th Auckland Triennial in 2013.
