Charlotte Jackman is a British relational artist who deals with the realm of live performance and documentation. Her practice is concerned with the evaluation of social labour and the influence of technology upon the personal and social body. The origins of Jackman’s work are traceable to personal experiences of living and within hyper-real and ultra-primitive places. Her work causes the catalysation and negotiation of new ways of being. Jackman’s enlightened documentation methods cause her work to rebel against museumification. Through using CCTV, photocopying, bluescreen and Skype we are called into to question our true image of communication in the digital age. The creation of new conventions is produced by Jackman’s fearless experimentation with off-limit or out-moded formats. Fragile tactics allow the work to occupy its own sense of time rather than a homogenized one. There is a sense that these documentation artefacts communicate a need for rediscovery. The actions recorded live on as a mythical moment, connoting an underlying morality to relearn.
