Article and Presentation
Annet Dekker @ MAP: Endnotes, Edinburgh Art Festival,
Saturday 13 August 2016
Endnotes is part of the MAP Footnoting the Archive project curated by guest editors Suzanne van der Lingen and Claire Walsh. Responding to the theme of endnotes, and coinciding with the completion of the MAP online archive, the editors invited contributors to examine ways of approaching archives as a creative, active platform rather than a static reserve of documented content. Each of the invited artists and researchers propose critical approaches to archiving, contemporary art and digital production.
New work by invited artists and researchers will be published on the MAP website and as a limited edition print. The limited edition print, designed by Osasto, will be available at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, where MAP’s Voicing the Archive installation is also available until 31 August. Endnotes will culminate in an event held at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) on 13 August.
The contributions will be published online and profiled on the Edinburgh Art Festival website, including work by Aideen Doran, Annet Dekker, and Victoria Horne. Van der Lingen and Walsh have been awarded the ECA School of Art micro residency, as part of which they will be producing new work on campus (1—26 August).
The Endnotes public event will be presented in the context of this residency, bringing together the commissioned contributors to discuss their research. A short presentation by each contributor will be followed by a chaired discussion, lead by Jenny Brownrigg.
The contribution Digital Marginalia by Annet Dekker is made possible with the support of the Mondriaan Fund, NL and CCS Bard College.
