Anarchives, Site-Specific Greenhouse Superstructures, and Social (Hyperobjective) Pedestals:: the dematerialisation and rematerialisation of colonial memory as environmental form

Abstract [en]

This paper is about initiating a process of augmentation. The subject of this augmentation is the compound, technical term “greenhouse superstructure”. The process is initiated here by deposing the matter of colonial memory that is entrenched within this term. The deposition takes form as a brief genealogy, an account of related artworks, and a hypothesis about the destabilisation of this technological apparatus. Its passages and components outline the subtle and insidious dialectics of accelerated climate change that are converged and suppressed as an impasse within the very envelop of the term - physically, conceptually, metaphorically. In doing so, I discuss how the discourse, my artworks, and other interventions may reveal, emancipate, and display these entrenched conditions beyond the visual and technological privileges of the “greenhouse”. I thereon argue that these destabilising formats of sculptural display may be referred to as Anarchives, Site-Specific Greenhouse Superstructures, and, ultimately, as Social (Hyperobjective) Pedestals.
