Waiting to Reconnect

Hanne Lippard & Claudia Pagès

Waiting to Reconnect is the fifth episode in An Involuntary Trace, the exhibition cycle which the collective This is Jackalope has been curating in Room A throughout 2021. It adopts the form of a dual exercise in creating a deliberate failure of language.

The capacity of communication is destabilised: on the one hand through constant repetition (Hanne Lippard), which inevitably breaks down the linear perception of time; and on the other, due to the recurring use of the gerund (Claudia Pagès), which puts us in a time of ongoing action that simultaneously becomes a temporality nullified by jurisdictional language, once again sabotaging the communicative role of words. The body and humanity are put in check.
