Protocols for Deceleration: Night is also a Sun

Outpost gallery, Norwich, UK, November 2009. A performance involving a parade through the streets of Norwich to the gallery to perform the Deceleration Ritual utilizing the four stations on display and destroying the previously made sand/glitter drawing. Throughout the duration of the exhibition, visitors (other subjects) entering the installation were also invited to perform the protocols and thus to become possessed of an infinite deceleration.

Plastique Fantastique, on this occasion, were David Burrows, Simon O’Sullivan, Samudradaka, Aryapala – and various Outpost folk. Chant by Residue which you can listen to here.

A deceleration is called for; a ‘switching off’, a prolonged hesitation. An ‘unplugging’ as they say. Laptop entrepreneurs, creative partnerships and project mangers: BEWARE! Your time is at hand. Plastique Fantastique will clear the volitions, unlearn you of the learnt, speak upside-down, and create new worlds from the debris of your ruined memories. A further station has been assembled for it has become CLEAR to all involved that indeed NIGHT IS ALSO A SUN. A ritual of a kind will take place, but before this performance you may, if you dare, divest yourselves of your own habitual modes and configurations. An exercise in de-programming, a TECHNOLOGY of re-singularisation.
