Artists Sarah Browne and Jesse Jones present an activist archive, developed as part of their current project In the Shadow of the State, a co-commission by Create (Ireland) and Artangel (UK). Burn in Flames: Post-Patriarchal Archive in Circulation does not deal with the objects of the past: it anticipates future, ideologically obsolete material that will no longer exist after the end of patriarchy, or however we might name this current regime. Audience are invited to participate by bringing with them items from everyday experience that can be named as evidence of the current, late-capitalist oppression of women, from legal documents to consumer goods. These objects will be identified, stamped, and placed back in circulation. The project welcomes online contributions—virtual stamps include #burninflames, #pparchive and #misogynisttimemachine.
