March 2012, online exhibition presented as part of Time-Lapse
March 24: susan pui san lok, DIY Ballroom, 2007
DIYBallroom/Live (2007-8) was a project in two parts, exploring the local and global allure of amateur ballroom dancing. A Cornerhouse/BBC national touring commission for outdoor public screens in the UK, the work coupled found online footage with flashmob-style live events. Contrasting digital and analogue makeshift dance-floors, setting asynchronous moves against standardised beats, DIY Ballroom/Live looks at compulsions to ‘have-a-go’, and both participate in, and constitute the spectacle.
Time-Lapse 18 February to 20 May 2012
In 1969, Seth Siegelaub, pioneering supporter of conceptual art, organized March 1969 a.k.a One Month, an exhibition that existed only in catalogue form. Siegelaub invited thirty-one artists to contribute a work; one for each day of the month. Time-Lapse curators Irene Hofmann and Janet Dees have conceived of a project that is an homage to Siegelaub’s ground-breaking “exhibition,” updated for today’s virtual, technological world. March 2012 will be hosted on the homepage of SITE’s website. Each day during March one work by a different artist will be featured. The participating artists are an international and intergenerational group currently working with conceptual, time-based and media-oriented practices.
