Garage Vivant (stalled) is a pamphlet of prompts for speculative, abandoned, impossible, aspirational or idealistic performances.
As part of the planned programme for GI 2020, Garage Vivant was to be a sequence of tableaux vivant performed for one night only in a roller-shutter garage behind Glasgow’s Mitchell library. The shutter would have risen five times, each time revealing a new static tableau. But in 2021, the roller-shutter is stalled. Instead, the artists offer a printed collection of ideas and evocations of performances that have never, and may never, take place. Taking the COVID-19 pandemic as an opportunity to pause and re-set, the artists imagine something that might have been, something unnoticed, something different, or something else.
