BUILT_EVENT sheds light to and signs chosen specific places. Each project manifests an insistence to a particular existing place and organizes the group’s move to it. The collection of each participant’s remaining material constitutes the work itself. Each visit’s remains are gathered in order to define the places by a plural failure of description.
The archive containing recordings (photographs, videos and texts), is taking the form of an open book while it is also stored in Internet data repositories. Each project’s archive is proposed as an unstable definition of the place, constructed by a permanent “trial and error” algorithm, fixed on the common visit event. The visit is proposed as a mourning of a lost presence, as an awareness of the absence of the’ place itself’ and as a substitute of the place identity. Each event is considered a theatrical act representing a fake but legitimate ‘substance’ of the place.
