Assembly: Drawing on a transcribed conversation between
Edward Dorrian and Nela Milic.
Close conversation recorded and now replayed at Five Years. Openly edited between participants and interested publics. As invitation for anyone to interrupt.
Nela, apologies for the long hiatus... and short notice. I’m planning to be in the space at Five Years on Sun 28 April 12-6pm, ostensibly going through a first draft of our conversation last May, as a kind of performative exercise. I only recently sent the recording off to be transcribed by a third party. I’ve attached their transcription and the recording. I don’t expect you to proof or necessarily participate on the Sunday (short notice) but I wondered if you’d allow me to sit in a ‘public’ place... transcribing? I haven’t gone through it in any way. If a completed second draft does arrive...and it won’t happen in the few hours... I will of course discuss with you any further plans... before any proper publication/ development. Let me know if you’ve any queries...
Hello Edward, Thank you for your email. I do not think I will be able to get to you on the 28th, but I am happy to be informed about your progress with the project. I just went through the transcript quickly and it is quite chaotic. I hope you can get what you need out of it as it goes everywhere, but we were in a good mood and that comes across very well!
