Traditionally the artist was considered an autonomous author and the roles between: curator – artist – space were clearly distinct. The curator was the mediator between public and author, qualifying a “place” for the work within a space that holds ‘power’ to qualify that ‘object’ as an art work. An almost magical process of transformation.
This research investigates those practices, focusing on methodologies that go beyond representation, rather to mechanisms in which the role becomes blurred. The potential of blurring boundaries is of interest, which can reveal an invisible and unnoticed aspect of traditional roles in art practice.
The notion of 'authorship' is a fundamental to this process and one that will be explored through the relational complexities of artist-curator.
