PERFORMANCE "THE CATALOGUE OF THE LOST" by ELLIE GA
The Giacometti Institute offers an exceptional performance by Ellie Ga, "The catalogue of the lost" at the heart of the exhibition "In Search of Lost Works" on Friday March 13, 2020 at 6.30 pm.
Ellie Ga is an American artist, writer and performer. She produces stories in the form of video installations, performances and artist books. She received an MFA from Hunter College in New York and a BA from Marymount Manhattan College in New York.
"The Catalogue of the Lost (and other Revelations)" is a live performance done in the lecture format, comprised of 282 images projected images. The narration focuses on the missing pieces of early exploration: lost places, people, photographs and geographic concepts–as well as the successes and failures to document "the unknown." Using images and objects from the Explorers Club’s collections, as well as historical anecdotes from early Arctic explorations, this work examines what is revealed through attempts to track down the missing pieces. The lecture is both a romantic tribute to human desire to ascertain terra incognita and an examination of the imperial impulses behind this romanticism.
