Gloss is an attempt at a speculative conservation practice surrounding my work Sky Blue Mythic.
It borrows the techniques and strategies of conservation practices in an effort to position conservation as a method which might keep an artwork alive and growing as multiple things, rather than as a method to fix it as one thing in time.
Sky Blue Mythic is a dance performance I started in 2020, finished in 2021, and will perform again soon in 2022. Re-rehearsing the work will be a bit like catching up with a friend you haven’t seen in a while—you chatter about shared experiences, and exchange new things until they also become shared and the relationship grows to encompass them. Gloss will happen while I’m in the process of this rehearsal, and as a way to continue working. It’s something to do—and by doing it the emphasis is placed on doing as a way to conserve the liveliness of something.
Gloss, as in glossary, but not in order to define something, rather to keep looking for what it might be.
