XMTS @ Past is Prologue Conference

XMTS: The use of archives and archived material towards the creation of new work.
 
 
Initiated in December 2011 ‘X Marks The Spot’ is a concerted period of research in conjunction with the Not Our Class and Jo Spence projects at Studio Voltaire, London - conducted by, Ego Ahaiwe, Lauren Craig, Emma Hedditch, Mystique Holloway, Zoe Holloway, Gina Nembhard and Louise Shelley. They are focusing on Spence’s work, on body image, health, and the representation of a life lived in the most social political form possible. Through the use of radical sociology Spence approached photography as a transformative process, documenting her life with breast cancer and use of alternative therapies.
 
 
XMTS will share elements of our collaboration process that has stimulated new work, our interactions and reflections and thoughts around our objective. Our outcome will be an archive to be deposited at WAL.
 
The themes we will be exploring during our breakout session are the following:
 
Health
Therapy
Identity
Memory
Documenting
Class
Race
Gender 
Gender, identity, culture and memory. The work of Lorna Simpson.

Judith Hopf - Hospital Bone Dance excerpt

'In Hospital Bone Dance (2006), produced in collaboration with filmmaker Deborah Schamoni, the programmatic patient–doctor relationship is thrown by the receptionist’s oblique response to a patient seeking help: ‘I’ve got a pain here, I’ve got to see the doctor.’ ‘The doctor? I’d like to see that doctor too!’ Only when the receptionist (the artist again) catches sight on a monitor of a doctor leading a band of mummies dancing zombie-like out of an operating room is her response pragmatic: ‘That moron. They’ll never get back.’ Kirsty Bell, Frieze Magazine

About:

Initiated in December 2011 'X Marks The Spot' is a concerted period of research in conjunction with the Not Our Class and Jo Spence projects at Studio Voltaire, London - conducted by Ego Ahaiwe,Yula Burin,Emma Hedditch, Mystique Holloway, Zoe Holloway, Gina Nimbhard and Louise Shelley. Taking the focus of Spence's work, on body image, health, and the representation of a life lived, in the most social political form possible. This research does not stay on the page, or screen but has populated our daily lives and heightened our experience of the present. Through Spence's approach to photography as a transformative process, documentation of her life with breast cancer, and education around alternative therapy and self education through radical sociology, Spence's work has pushed us to the limits of what we can involve ourselves in. We are taking on Spence's ideas, with our selves as subjects, and sharing with our present communities.

X Marks the Spot have worked on various outcomes that have crossed into public programming at Studio Voltaire, including: a radio programme, this blog, photography workshops, research and public events series.
