We’re living in particularly strange times …This book was produced for THE IMAGINARY ARCHIVE project curated by Gregory Sholette. In it I imagine a series of “What if’s” based on the continuing assaults to women’s reproductive rights by ill-informed uneducated politicians, and religious zealots. This book is a wry journey that juxtaposes actual current events with the aquatic life of a phenomenal sea creature called the Pyura Chilensis.
The Imaginary Archive
Imagine yourself uncovering a cache of materials and documents that record a past whose future never arrived. Imaginary Archive Graz is just such a repository: printed materials, objects, and narratives that imagine an alternative history, which nevertheless sheds a surprisingly strong light on concrete realities. New York based artist Gregory Sholette invited participants from Galway, Ireland, Wellington, New Zealand, as well as Graz, Austria, The United States, and other countries around the globe to produce this installation. Thus Imaginary Archive is made up of under-represented, unknown, invisible, dreaded and/or hoped-for “historical” materials that point to multiple ways of interpreting the past, the present, and the future.
