Impossible Archive (Artefacts)

2017

Collection of objects reflecting on how we construct believes, certainty and impossibilities.

‘If men define situations as real, they are real in their consequences.’

 

Thomas Theorem

 

Impossible Archive was a series of works including collection of essays on “impossibilities,” sculptural objects, video installation, and a two-channel museum audio guide performance.

Impossible Archive started from speculations about the past, reflections on how knowledge is subjective, and observations on the similarity between museum artefacts and MacGuffins*

in movies.

 

* term used by Hitchcock to describe a plot device (e.g. object, character, or event) that drives the plot forward, despite the MacGuffin not having any intrinsic significance in itself.
