dc.description.abstractThis commissioned and curated exhibition was the culmination (but not an endpoint) of a series of explorations since 2008 that explores the status of objects, drawings and other traces used in or created by performance art. As the series has developed, there has been the cultivation of an approach which presents such objects so that they imply a close link with the performances that produced them, in contrast to traditional modes of archive display. The Spacex exhibition continues the theme by using the arrangement of objects – open to handling and rearrangement by visitors – to suggest that the objects pieces – scores, drawings, found and fabricated objects, prints, paintings – possess some 'substance' or value beyond their status as components in an event of performance art. Earlier exhibitions which develop this approach are documented on pp. 14, 60,61,64, 181 of Substance, and are discussed by Roms in her essay in the book, pp. 12-21. As Roms indicates, this transforms exhibition from being a straightforward 'putting on show' with objects tied to events, to being an occasion where the traditional art object–viewer distinction breaks down and a free-play of meaning is generated by visitors wilfully or mischievously reorganize the archive.en_GB
