I don’t know if I should call them abandoned places; what I mean is relegated areas, where the surroundings are suspended for the moment and one can imagine being in any park, anywhere, even at the antipodes. - Sergio Chejfec, My Two Worlds

With loca projects / rehearsal, David Clegg revisits a series of recordings he made at The Physics Room nine years ago to create archivedestruct, an ongoing project involving the collection of images and sounds that form an archive of transitory or relegated spaces. Spending time in Christchurch again earlier this year, Clegg explored the city that is vaguely familiar, but a rather different place now. Walking the streets, seeking out parks and thinking on the writing of Sergio Chejfec, Clegg engaged psychogeography as a way to augment and reconsider his existing archive. A rehearsal is often undertaken in preparation for the performance event proper, a practice that is open to mistakes and retakes, where the audience is negligible. loca projects / rehearsal picks up on archivedestruct and will also have several iterations, spanning two exhibitions at The Physics Room. Drifting through the city, looping back to places for which there is no map, Clegg has generated loca projects as a way to rethink his earlier recordings and also negotiate anew this unstable locale. Like in Chejfec’s My Two Worlds, the park takes on special resonance as a place that cannot be located.
