What remains is future

an installation and a book by David Bergé
presenting Marc Vanrunxt


What Remains Is Future is an installation and a book by artist David Bergé responding to the archive choreographer Marc Vanrunxt has been developing since 1981.
The use of time and space in Bergé’s installation creates a transient moment where the archive of Marc Vanrunxt becomes only movement and ideas. Rather than attempting to establish a perceived totality of work, Bergé instead renders a physical archive and its totality as ultimately intangible and invisible.
What Remains Is Future is Bergé’s spatial activation of this archive in the present.  It includes rescaled replicas of scenographic objects from the archive and a projection of archival photographs, physically appearing and then dissolving so as to stretch present time toward timelessness.
The book What Remains Is Future is a continuation of the installation and will be available for visitors to the work as well as through distribution by the publishing house 'big black mountain the darkness never ever comes’.
