Life takes place on foot

 

Performance

In this performance people will pretend to be cars that will be 'driven' in highly populated pedestrian zones.  Four people positioned in the same way that tyres are placed on real cars, wearing the same coloured clothes pushing tyres with their hands will represent each 'car'.

Love and Loss are two of our most vital emotions:  you can't really experience Love without knowing the fear of Loss, or know Loss without experiencing Love.  

The paintings and works on paper in this show look at the double-sidedness and inseparability of these everyday, life-shaping emotions.

Solo Show

3 March to 3 April 2010

Wednesday, 3 March, 2010, from 6pm

Artereal Gallery, Darling St Rozelle, Sydney

Life is made up of moments, which we try to give a beginning and an end.  We don't know what happened before or after the moment, but we try on the basis of those fragmented stories to understand the world.

Each of the works in the show looks at the relationship between performance and the everyday, and reflects upon the significance and beauty of commonplace activities and spaces.  Some works simply capture a moment, and others show socially based interventions I have directed that have been performed in the urban landscape of different cities by local participants, with a fun and light-hearted approach.

On opening night, a performance of Boots for Rising Waters, will see women modelling gumboots with black stilt-like fixtures on their base.
