We’re All Involved In This Mess is an experimental performative exhibition at EnclaveLab in London. The exhibition consists of a flux of performances and on-site creations in which artists engage both with the space and with the previous works, leaving a succession of traces along the way.
We're All Involved in This Mess is about the process, not the final product. It is a self-fulfilling, evolving exhibition created through sedimentation. The individual practices become dissolved and therefore it is impossible to clearly identify authorship. The project aims to blur the exhibitionary boundaries that usually divide exhibition and production, studio and gallery.
The exhibition will unfold over three weeks, with each weekend beginning with an evening-long marathon of performances. Over the weekend, the gallery will be open for visitors to see the artists’ traces accompanied by video documentation of the previous performance day.
