Archeology of the archeology of television

This illustrated presentation by Montreal artist Tim Dallett considers the relationship between artistic intentionality and televisual technology. An audiovisual system connects two distinct sites in real time: Dazibao’s screening room, where the public watches a live transmission, and a second location where the transmission originates. Equal parts research report, live performance, artist’s talk and manifesto, Archeology of the archeology of television offers a series of reflections on roles played by point of view, duration, spatial relations and instrumentality in artistic practice.

Tim Dallett holds a MFA in Fine and Media Arts from Nova Scotia College of Arts and Design. His practice, based in installation and performance, explores real-time, multi-channel video and sound as tools for mediating relationships between himself as a performer, an audience and a physical site. In parallel with his individual practice, he is the co-founder, with Adam Kelly, of the Artifact Institute.

Dazibao thanks the artist for his generous collaboration as well as its members for their support.

Dazibao receives financial support from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des arts de Montréal, the ministère de la Culture et des Communications and the Ville de Montréal.
