“We All Live Downstream” is a performative lecture written in collaboration by artists Leslie Kulesh & Charlie Woolley. While spending 2 months driving through the US state of California, Kulesh & Woolley developed a scripted performance to be presented in the gallery space at the culmination of the trip. At the core of the performance is an investigation into the desire to hold onto events of the recent past. The attempt to resist the ever increasing speed of politics, technology and social lives by memorializing things that were, until recently, of great importance is often horribly futile or sentimental. How can we plug into the radical past, and revitalise feelings so recently felt and ideas that may still hold poignancy? How do you memorialise a page that is constantly refreshing?
