Embodying the archive explores history mediated through the body. Rather than reproducing archival structures or trafficking in readymade historical traces, the artists work with performance, narration and tactile forms to approach questions of historicity, expose the fluidity of the archive and pressure its authoritative status. In dialogue with real and imagined figures, they draw out relations between past and present to address a range of themes, among them feminist genealogies, the knowledge economy and the afterlives of ephemeral practices.

In the wake of the so-called ‘archival turn’, and against a backdrop of proliferating re-enactments and renewed modes of appropriation, the logics at work here resist such straight alignments. Instead, the exhibition charts a spectrum of responses to the gaps and crossovers among these tendencies, from reflections on the dynamic between embodied subject and archival object, to experiments with embodying the archive and articulations of the body as an archive.
