Published on the occasion of the exhibition:
Process Progress Projects Archive
Chelsea Space
28 January - 11 March 2006

Process Progress Projects Archive was a series of prospective open conversations in a constantly changing and unfinished installation. It was a six week process-spective ending on the same day that Bruce McLean held his King for a Day one-day 'retrospective' in 1972. That is to say, it ended at the beginning.

Chelsea Space acted as a container for a collection of archives, films, posters, notebooks, paintings, proposals, drawings, prints, slides, ceramics, audiotapes, photographs, models, invitation cards, press cuttings, plans, objects, and ephemera, spanning four decades.

At intervals across a six week period McLean unpacked elements from this collection, looked at them; discussed them; installed them; performed them; projected them; remade them; ordered them; re-ordered them; hid them; listened to them; uninstalled them; repacked them.
