Ami Clarke and antepress
13 February 2010
Discussions and short presentations related to the idea of the diagram will take place at FormContent on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th amongst an installation by Ami Clarke. Her screens, reminiscent of office cubicles and temporary exhibition stands, provide a spacial grid within the gallery space where to discuss and display the gathered materials.
Program of the day
Saturday 13th from 2 to 6 pm
—Dr. John Mullarkey’s lecture Diagrammatic Actualism, ACTUAL VIRTUAL (30’ ca)
“My argument is basically that, whereas Deleuze tends to think of his diagrams as virtual processes – as only a potentially concrete (or actual) thing – I believe that it is better to think of them as already actual processes.”
Touching on ideas relating to the working drawing and the performative object.
Presentation of An Improvised Diagram Syllabus - an overview of the diagram ranging from Rodchenko to Gabriel Orozco - and photographic and video work by Rachel Lois Clapham and Alex Eisenberg.
Presentation of 3 balloons carefully balanced to transcribe in mercurial lines a diagram of almost anything.
