This is the site for a two year performance/research project by Sydney based artist Julie Vulcan. It consists of two parts; Undisclosed (2008) and Disclosed (2009)
In 2008 on the last Sunday of each month Julie performed a site-specific work at an undisclosed location.
There were no invited witnesses and no visual/aural documentation.
There was a personal written account.
In 2009 on the last Sunday of each month Julie performed a site-specific work at a disclosed location.
There was one invited witness who documented the work in a media of their choice.
There was no personal written account.
This is an exercise in memory.
This is an exercise in planting memory, living memory, absent memory, evoking memory.
This is an exercise in the veracity of memory.
This in an exercise in questioning memory.
This is an exercise in performing for the document.
Although Un/disclosed is now finished in one form it continues in another. I am now in the process of writing and responding to questions and ideas surrounding this work.
I would really love to hear responses and feedback from you, the audience, in relation to your experience navigating around this online performance site. I am particularly interested in how different pieces made you feel and what you saw.
Thankyou for your time.
