‘DISPLAY’ is a real-time research piece that allows me to discover and learn from local sources and eventually share the results with a broader audience both in the gallery and online.
In ‘DISPLAY’ I stand in the space in CoCA, during opening hours, every day for as long as I can for a week. My feet are bare. In my hands I display items which were used by performers who I believe were relevant in history and in my development. I don’t talk. From time to time I change the item. One of the items belongs to a New Zealand performance artist who will be discovered during the residency with the help of the public, other artists or whoever feels they want to bring something to the piece.
Ivan will also be holding the caravan residency from the 31st July - 6 August, 2017.
