A self-directed body of work, acting as ‘archivist in residence’ for the Dimanche Rouge 2013 festival held across Finland, Estonia and France. The nature of this work allowed me to explore in more detail how I might construct ‘alternative’ archives of other artists’ performances. An individual account of the witnessing of the work, rooted in that particular moment. The photographs represent a series of encounters between photographer, performer and space. The resulting output would tend towards the document by definition of being a conscious recording of an event, however I aimed to approach the making and contextualisation of the process instead as trace.
