iphone distances: a performance-based installation

September 3, 2018 8:00 pm

An event becomes the production site of documentation. The captured perspectives and isolated moments leave the location and fragment the actions into still images that only took place in the medium itself. An archive is then produced by the event and not of the event taking place in Nadim Choufi’s iPhone Distances. The installation places the artist powerlessly within the performance’s consumption. The audience is complicit and in charge of constructing the accounts of the performance through their personal perspective of what took place. What is left behind in a space devoid of an event will be the remnants of the audience’s selective documentation.
