Main Article Content
Closed Down Clubs is a body of work that replicates doors to clubs located in various places the artist encounters, where personal, technological, economic, and political forces have led to their failure as part of the urban fabric. As full-scale objects that one can walk around, these doors are place holders for the entities they mimic or represent; they point to places that had once supported communities, autonomous places that have now been erased.
The archive is the source material for a number of exhibitions internationally. When not on exhibition, this archive is based in Connor’s studio. The visual essay charts the artist’s making process in her own words, accompanied by photographs taken by Marten Elder in her studio. This piece expands on and will become part of the archive, and along the way, ruminates on an extraordinary moment of NOW.
