loca projects

as a form of speculative spatial practice loca projects utilises reading and quotation in relation to peripheral or threshold zones, principally between the institution and the street. The project was developed during a research residency at The Physics Room, Christchurch in 2015, and presented there in two exhibitions. loca projects / rehearsal uses photographs and sound recordings made within the institution and surrounding neighbourhoods, in relation to the reading of ‘My Two Worlds’ by Sergio Chejfec. A forthcoming publication will include a selection of archive materials with essays by Melanie Oliver and Abby Cunnane. A second iteration of the project will take place at the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth in late 2016. There is an open archive at locaprojects.org, as part of the ongoing project.
