Archive: This Was The End

  • CultureHub 47 Great Jones Street, 3rd Floor New York, NY 10012 USA (map)


Archive: This Was The End is at once an artifact and experience — the afterlife of a performance as interactive sculpture. Here, you are the actor, and a wall — salvaged from the old PS 122 community center — is the physical manifestation of a memory of a play, which your presence activates and disrupts. Sound and video portraits embedded and mapped onto the wall produce a reverse relief. What is far seems near and near, far. The past hypnotizes the present, denying its erasure, to remind us of a life before that continues.

Directed and created by Mallory Catlett/Restless NYC, Archive: This Was The End features video and programming by Keith Skretch, sound and video manipulation by G Lucas Crane. It features performances on video by G Lucas Crane, Black-Eyed Susan, Jim Himelsbach, Rea C Wright, and Paul Zimet.
