“we are not at the centre but we surround ourselvesʼ
“Through the course of the residency, I will be developing a site specific performance work, in which I will search to create a sense of wholeness out of fractured elements. Making connections between materials, technologies, positions and the audience over the whole two week period, culminating in a one-off performance.”
Rules (in no particular order)
1) Use more than one space
2) Connect spaces through actions
3) Create a sense of whole
4) Retain differences between areas/performances
5) Use technology
6) Find different ways of interacting with an audience
7) Show thought processes in space everyday, through drawings, diagrams, objects etc.
Can I create a sense of wholeness while retaining difference within the works?
What role could notions of systems, entropy and boredom have within my work?
How can I create positive relations with an audience, conveying meaning and preventing a block between artist and audience?
Aims for the residency
I will develop a new site specific performance work within the two week period of the residency. I will be in the space at least 5 days a week. I will show drawings, objects and rehearsals in the space, with full public access. I will show processes on site and in a blog. I will use a number of different media within the work. I will interact with the audience using a variety of methods and media”
