Neither Rummaging nor Fossicking

Richard Wentworth

In his presentation Richard Wentworth leads himself through a thicket of typologies, exploring the idea that the advent of literacy has led to the recording of hitherto unnoticed, forgotten details - notes taken, records kept, negatives developed, photographs printed, mail filed, ephemera pasted, stamps philatelised, emails clouded. Referencing his own work as an artist, he discusses the drive to create chaos through the collection of detritus and palimpsests, and connect this impetus with the corona of friendships, agencies and possessions which describe a modern western urban human.
