Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art: Feminist Art Base: Nancy Wilson-Pajic

Manifesto

Manifesto

Nancy Wilson-Pajic. Manifesto, 2004–2004.

Description:
Installation on computer screens consisting of a continuous video "slide show" of 3 texts in short phrases in white letters on black, dealing with what art should be: ---Manifesto I 2000-04 ---Manifesto II 2004 ---Visible & Invisible 1977 Presented at the Galerie Fran?oise Paviot in Paris in 2004. -----TEXT (Excerpts) Put together banal objects and fragments of text... Place them at random... Space them in awkward fashion... Let them take on their own meanings... Use the first thing which comes to hand... Things one never noticed before... That which simply exists, humbly, which doesn’t signify... Eliminate conceptual and narrative elements... What other unifying factors are there? Is the human desire for meaning a unifying factor?... Dramaturgies of the banal... Little theatres of the inanimate... See them as theatre pieces... Rid common objects of their anecdotal character... Render the object incongruous in its own environment... A sort of spotlight to shine on objects, disembedding them... An intellectual spotlight, a mind set... Techniques for rendering things extraordinary...
