Karin Kihlberg and Reuben Henry

Collaborative Practice

28 March 2013

Karin Kihlberg and Reuben Henry talked on their collaborative practice.

“Documentation, representation, and the narratives that bind history together are utilised by contemporary culture as routes to comprehend and consume the contemporary paradigm. In our work we take these same routes as phenomena to be explored, appropriated and transformed in combination with established structures of drama and fictionalization. We aim to capture uncertainties of the present and generate an unstable perception of time, using subjective understandings and non-linear narrative as methods to see an event from alternative angles and perspectives. We are not bound to any particular medium, but are drawn instead to finding ways in which documentation can operate beyond representing the past.” – Karin Kihlberg and Reuben Henry
