 Vanishing Point

Description

'...the issue this time is to indicate the precise point in the present to which my historical construction will orient itself, as to its vanishing point' - Walter Benjamin.

Both hybrid performance project and two-year experiment, Vanishing Point explores the ambiguity of authorship and the possibility of preservation in performance art. Dancer Shian Law (Jo Lloyd, BalletLab, Lz Dunn, Lara Thoms) employs a range of (un)orthodox strategies including documentary, archiving, fabrication and outright theft, to unsettle the question: 'Whose show is this?'

Trans-media artist and compulsive experimentalist, Law takes a quasi-archivist approach to document and historicise his bodily encounter with three choreographic works by Phillip Adams, Deanne Butterworth and Jo Lloyd. A team of documentary makers and a portrait painter record the elapsing time as he locates, excavates and performs the dance works.

Vanishing Point playfully and stealthily maps the constellation of lineage, questions of authenticity, and the multiple folds that frame a portrait of a contemporary artist.
