‘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.
