    "Artists Material" (2013)

    Various Works.

    Exhibited during Ian Giles workshop, 'Expanding Performance' 2013

    Exploring the relationship to the body and space - looking into different materials and the spaces which I can put my body into in close proximity to really experience the material.

    Looking at making performative sculptures which are pockets which involve myself inside. These looked at the role of the performer and also focused on the interaction between the viewer and artist - the viewers would happily talk about my work as though I wasn't there. Touching me in strange places and confused to whether there was actually a person inside or not. I looked at repeating this performance with a latex pocket, almost a womb like object.  This more was more of a focus on the relationship to the latex as well as being more transparent so people were more aware of my presence.
