808.838 / grandfather paradox
Ms&Mr
13 August - 10 September 2010

Ms&Mr recast the celluloid bodies of Richard’s infant self and his deceased grandfather; found suspended in the moratorium of the family archive. They are recalibrated in an act which literalises the theoretical loop of the grandfather paradox.

It is part resuscitation, and part autoinfanticide horror.

Ms&Mr transpose the family library with the ideas of Nikolai Fyodorov, a 19th century Russian librarian, who’s philosophy of Resuscitative Resurrection predates the cosmism he inspired.
