The Archive of Failure is a new project which has been funded by the Arts Council’s Grants for The Arts fund. The project is aimed at generating an online visual archive of images relating to the concept of failure. These images will later go on to form a unique publication, which will then be distributed to art institutions across the UK.
As it evolves the archive will become an unselected and unedited series of visual responses to the idea of FAILURE in its broadest range of senses or deviations. In essence the archive is an experiment in generating a collective visual narrative based upon a single word.
The narrative will be generated by whoever feels compelled to contribute. There will be no curating, no overarching “quality control” and no selection process.
