Sourcebook is an exhibition of re-search impulses by artists Mandy El-Sayegh and Helena Hunter through their conceptual, material, and structural coincidences. In moving image form, it compiles aesthetic output in the layering of surfaces that can be experienced as cuts and transitions, aural notations in speech and poetry, or paratextual excess of found objects and frequencies.

Sourcebook reveals the ongoing show-and-tell between El-Sayegh, Hunter, and curator Renan Laru-an in their attempt to create art during a crisis of reunion. When commonly used tools in research have foisted incommensurability on context specificity, they accessed historicised content by reassembling linguistic markers that produce newly disambiguated texts for reading. The collaboration finds itself in the margins of analytical script as it disappoints source materials, such as archival data and field reports, from the tradition of close reading.
