Serving on supervisory jury congregation fanbase squad.
Forecast and horoscope Delphic oracle consulted for reference.
Give or take joining forces with frontline voyeurism and some self-service consideration and ascertainment thrown in for good measure.
Hopefully, headed towards gradual arrival at estimate diagnoses verdict findings score.
Mais quelque grande surprise, challenge and revelation, for creators, organization and audience alike.
Not HOUR, but full-blown DAY, WEEKEND, LiFETiME and ETERNiTY.
Allan Kaprow — Happenings pioneer and inventor of that term — declared time to be a process, substance, medium and artform.
Wolf Vostell once used some sugar, bowl and spoon to demonstrate differences he identified between Allan Kaprow & other’s Happenings, George Maciunas’ Fluxus events and Wolf Vostell’s own Decollage.
Photographic-artist, Hiroshi Sugimoto’s time-lapse exposure etudes of movies on cinema screen, housebuilding and demolition, sea tides, archaeology and other durational procedures.
Expectation, planning, accident, opportunism.
Respect, cooperation, ignoring, avoidance, challenge, testing, competitiveness, opposition.
Perhaps encouraged and at least seemingly spontaneous outbursts of togetherness, support and rivalry amongst participants in historical (or legendary!) events:
Gustav Metzger’s 1966 Destruction in Art Symposium;
the 1968 Azioni Povera fair at Amalfi;
1969’s conceptualism and arte povera group shows, When Attitudes Become Form and Op Losse Schroeven;
Fluxshoe 1972-’73 regional UK touring survey show and festival.
Open-ended, flexible, happilyforeveraftermore, conclusive, definite, finalized, whatever else.
Total art comedy.
If only ensuing crime scene forensic evidence clue votive offerings were kept staying behind, whether explained or left as mystery.
Sown and planted, for growth, blossoming, crop, harvest, multiplication, spread, breakout, evolution and general afterlife.
Attempt to imagine, make and use or even be a “Time-Mirror”.
No mere gauge or monitor of time.
But instead truly active generation, supply and control of time — and all that time is, does and causes — then what can happen within time.
Unfeasibility Study concerned likelihood of progress, effectiveness, consequence or use-value to art, culture and whatever else.
At 1st, I came up with 2 (or rather, 1 & a 1/2!) “manifestos” for their website.
The most overgrown of them, Returning Back Again to the Crime-Scene, Only with a Vengeance this Time Around, For more of the Same or Different addressed cultural practitioners, output, organizations, venues and events becoming rife and epidemic — then, if anything better or some improvement could be necessary, possible, done or happening.
Whilst the briefest, Mission-Impossible Quota Score says just about the same — only a fraction as long.
Also, for the Unfeasibility Study’s catalog, I “defined” chosen works by 14 accepted submission entrants, what else they did otherwise and in general.
Unfeasibility Study’s selection was from an open-call, aimed at emergent artists, recent postgraduates and promising students — in particular, if they dealt with the problematics and context to their work, practice, medium and discipline — by itself and regarding external conditions.
None of them were people, artists or work I self-consciously knew.
Not dissimilar to other undertakings.
Beforehand, I’d written about multiple artists, sometimes at short-notice and occasionally hitherto unknown people.
Only this was far more demanding.
I’d never done more than 1 of those at once.
This had to be written within a single weekend, alongside other things, only armed with some background gained from contact and research — reinforced by or backing up me doing my utmost and pushing myself.
Unfeasibility Study included Mimi Norrgren, UK based, expatriate Norwegian, performance artist.
At Unfeasibility Study’s launch event, Mimi Norrgren walked inside a cloth covered and wooden framework — through the outdoors courtyard.
Heres my “definition” of Mimi Norrgren’s exhibited artwork in Unfeasibility Study catalog.
Bird, provokes pondering human concerns of constant vulnerability and desperate need for survival — but also the craving and desire for experience, risk-taking and even danger. Even in this day and age, gender-politics enter the equation, given the author (and heroine or star) is female and young.
Furthermore, only a single still photograph of just 1 scene from Bird is in Unfeasibility Study; no moving image footage, audio or relics.
However, being in black and white as well as fact theres limited material to “go on” serve as reminders that much earlier post and cold war era performance and other work is only “known” from vintage records or even 2nd-hand “reality”.
Additionally, the past / present / future status of live-art is called into question, with cases argued for-and-against.
An important part of Richard Crow’s life and work was his early to mid 1990’s Institution of Rot event venue, at his North London domestic and working space, where he inhabited from between the early 1980’s until 2009.
Richard Crow’s ventures include Institution of Rot appraisals.
Such as the 2009 eviction and departure ceremony, festivities, mourning, “wake” or “exorcism”, A Demised Premise.
A readymade housing and property term.
Then, 2013’s A Rotten Corpus, “séance” or “invocation” for the Institution of Rot, at Goldsmiths College, London.
Both involving me.
Another resurrected phoenix arisen from the Institution of Rot’s ashes was Richard Crow’s A Demised Premise dossier and black museum, published in the Dokument, Dispositiv, Deskription, Diskurs, number of OEI anthology, Stockholm, 2011.
1 page is an image of me performing, with my own summed-up impressions and aspects of the Institution of Rot; but ideally both halves should be prelude and sequel, at opposite extreme ends of A Demised Premise.
I sometimes recite this and other works by me, with Crow’s found material, when we perform, record or are filmed.
Earlier, it was released as audio track (with quoted extracts on sleeve) on Richard Crow & Institution of Rot’s 2009 A Demised Premise cd and cassette.

Convenient nextdoor neighbouring wasteland and droughtzone, barren — even by such standards — but place where furrows plow and tend themselves.
Subsequently, newborn lunar desert grows enclosure surrounds and covering rooftop.
Behind there, indoors, down below and underneath. River and ocean, bank and shore, bed and depths. Mud quagmire and quicksand saltmarsh — extraction and drainage — ignite, burn, crumble and dissolve. Ensuing sawdust, rusty filings and raw ash — which weep, perspire and bleed — far beyond mere death gone and passed. Careworn, tired, weak and empty.
Until diluted and impure irrigation-supply comes to the rescue. Dosage and salvation, planted and sunken, dryness and need, absorb and swallow.
So awoken, that fresh again, then strength returns, before empowerment is attained and rejuvenating back.
Next, they become multicoloured — infinite spectrum flashes up — solid ground, actually turning into completely different material substances altogether — in fast change — each one after another — when not on overload, same time, all at once.
Tropical coral reef of very much living and healthy glitter, sequin, millefiori, chameleon and kaleidoscopic pollen and spores.
Hyperactive decoration pattern and pictorial imagery. Embroidery carpet pavement, stained-glass see-through flooring, jewelry mosaic terrain. Rainforest jungle gardens blossom. Clear water flows.
