Anna Barham “Light Swathes Crossing” at Arcade, Brussels

Anna Barham presents a group of new works made using the language she produces  collaboratively with other readers and computer processes in her live production  reading groups. Light Swathes Crossing is a video developed from passages from  Judith Butler’s Precarious Life and Gustav Flaubert’s descriptions of St Anthony’s  hallucinations in the desert in The Temptation of St Anthony. A series of framed works  incorporate other texts, materials and images using the psychedelic description of St  Anthony’s dissolution of self as a kind of anti-structure. 

Alongside the exhibition, our new platform for publications Pete and Repeat hosts  Barham’s recent book Poisonous Oysters alongside a series of her other publications,  editions and works on paper. The physical home of Pete and Repeat in Brussels is  a structure designed by Barham as part of her ongoing Crystal Fabric Field project.  For Light Swathes Crossing the structure also extends into the front gallery space  becoming support for the video and audience. 

Anna Barham’s work explores translation, authorship and subjectivity as distributed forms  of agency. She uses video, text, print, installation and live events, to create works and  situations that consider the audience as further agents in the production and transformation  of ‘sense’. 

 

At Arcade, Brussels
until 10 October 2020
