The Exhibition :
The role of an archive lies in the commitment to finding and preserving the record of the human experience. FEVER showcases a group of modern photographers documenting the human sexual experience. Additionally, FEVER asks both how the work is shared and viewed, and also explores the question of potential longevity and archival preservation of this type of artwork.
FEVER derives its name and concepts from the book, Archive Fever by Jacques Derrida, which argues that while an archive is a public realm, it is also a repository of the private and personal, including the intimate. Published in 1996, Archive Fever also examines the role technology has played in transforming the entire public and private space of humanity.
