Documents, (with Henry Bond) 1990 onwards

 

A series of works that operate in parallel to the standard media agencies such as newspapers and television news companies. Over a period of years, the artists have obtained prior information and pre-edited material from organisations such as the Press Association and attended the events listed. After a period of negotiations, the work is formalised as black and white or color images, framed and accompanied by a text. The work functions as a way to engage with parallel information structures. It provides a site for debate between the two artists and a way to question certain issues of representation in relation to our perception of authority and in relation to 'the event' as a key marker for our understanding of the way social power structures are organised.
