|Title||Archive in Ashes|
'Archive in Ashes' is a sculpture acquired by Henry Moore Institute on behalf of the Leeds Sculpture Collection. The work is an archive of the art performance event 'Neal White realises a skoob tower' which was performed for the exhibition " A Lesson in Sculpture with John Latham' at Henry Moore Institute. The remains and ashes of that performance, that involved burning a John Latham 'skoob sculpture' includes part of a partially destroyed Encyclopaedia vacuum sealed and placed in a briefcase with instructions for display, a video recording of the event, and contextual signage that draws on Latham's theory of Flat Time and Johns display of his canonical piece "Still and Chew', now in MOMA, New York. The work continues Whites intervention in Henry Moore Institute archives, following his project Third Campaign (2003).
