    Alastair MacLennan: LIM(I)NAL (October-November 2020) was an evolving online exhibition conceived by Bodor in collaboration with media archivist Adam Lockhart to explore how to make the artist's drawing-as-performance work public as a living archive. This was the first curatorial project on, a website set up in 2019 - with funding from ART360 (A.Lockhart) - to accompany MacLennan’s newly acquisitioned physical performance art archive at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design. This exhibition launched the new website as a curatorial platform and combined the digitization of the physical archival material with a new multi-modal research project, What is a Living Archive? Curating the Unruly Materiality of Contemporary Art - initiated by Bodor - to explore new approaches to interaction with time-based archives held in Dundee. The exhibition was accompanied by IN AND EASE, a colloquium curated by Bodor including a live drawing workshop with Alastair MacLennan and presentations of response works by artists Tania Kovats, Sandra Johnson and Roddy Hunter. The exhibition and event was further contextualised in the publication 'Presence at a Distance: Alastair MacLennan and performing drawing in lockdown’. In: Bissell, L. & Weir, L. eds. 2021. Performance in a Pandemic. London: Routledge., pp. 111-123.
