Rowan Geddis’ curatorial and research practice centers around questions concerning the potential of the performative - situationally, relationally and in a process-focused mode: a live thinking through activity. These issues are explored through the staging of innovative exhibition formats, event-based activity and diverse live works, where a consonant and analogous relationship between display and performance can be tested. Within these scenarios, exhibition making ‘in and of itself’ is not his primary concern, but rather an examination of the mechanics of artistic-process and its relation to an audience.
