Where: Rivington Place, London EC2A 3BA
What is it?
Performance artist Tania El Khoury collaborates with the Inivators (Iniva’s Youth Advisory Board) to present Possible Damage at Rivington Place, an exhibition and archive of London’s recent student protests. Collectively they have investigated the construction of a social memory and the consequent realities. It provides a platform through which we can imagine the shared experiences, narratives and conflicts of those involved. The exhibition is accompanied by a series of events, including a public intervention and interactive performances.
Possible Damage is created in response to Lebanese artist Rabih Mroué’s exhibition
I, the Undersigned – The People are Demanding, also showing at the gallery (the title has changed in response to current events in the Middle East). It explores similar themes such as collective memory and questioning assumptions about truth and fiction.
The archive brings together found, donated and created objects each contributing towards preserving a fragile memory of a particular event. You can also join the Inivators for Possible Damage: Re-Collection I, an experiential installation performance centred around a group the Inivators refer to as ‘the disappeared’ (31 March, 6:30pm), followed in April by a public intervention and performance.
