Bodies that co-create: Ethnographic Research with Artist Suze Adams

The Cartesian Cut?' exhibition hosted Adams' performed artist residency and installation 'At One Remove'. During the piece the artist occupied the window area at the exhibition and spent the day working in the space. After one week in the window, Adams removed her physical self and left her work and things in situ. Eloise was onsite, and conducted ethnographic research during the performance. Adams' piece offered an opportunity to explore the human:material relationships in flow both during and beyond the artist's presence in the window.

Creative Practice: How Communities were ‘made’ at Çatalhöyük

What role did creative practice play in social life at the Neolithic tell Çatalhöyük, and what evidence is there to suggest that making informed the maintenance of the ‘social bond’? Socio-creativity is an undeveloped but important area of research for archaeological approaches to the Neolithic, and offers a unique opportunity to consider both individual and community dynamics, tensions and changing social values from the residues of material interactions. Utilising the work of Bennett (2010a), Barad (2003, 2007, 2012), and Gell (1998) I formulate a critically-informed but practically embedded methodology that finds material “phenomena” (Barad 2003) at the settlement.
