TEMPLE OF JACKIE (TESTING TIMES)
RADAR Loughborogh University
HUMAN CONDITION/ING Radar is currently working on two new commissions with Jacqueline Donachie and Revital Cohen that have involved a dialogue between the artists and academics based within the Department of Sport and Exercise Science. Each of the new works will respond, in very different ways to research around improving human performance.
Jacqueline became interested in the testing and monitoring of athletes and decided to put herself through a rigorous testing programme. She made notes and documented the process and has subsequently spent a period in the studio undertaking a series of drawings. The outcomes of this period of research and development will be presented in November within a temporary mobile structure which documents her process. The structure will be dedicated to the cult of the ordinary in a place where excellence is paramount.
