I’m doing a performance. A proper one that I won’t be able to run away from, or hide my face with a mask. I might zone out a bit. It’s about dissociation so that’ll work, I think.
’12 Months’ is a sound and live painting performance. I’m painting in response to the words I am saying, prose and journal entries I have carefully selected from 33 years of being a morose tart.
I’ll be doing the performance at the opening reception (yes, there will be alcohol), Thursday 23rd October 18.00 – 21.00, then the two following weekends from midday until 5pm, and finally on Saturday 8th November for our closing reception, again from 18:00-21:00.
“The Lights Are On… is a group exhibition relating to and exploring issues of mental health, well-being and the quirks of human existence and takes it’s title from the saying ‘the lights are on but no one is home’ which alludes to the idea of someone being preoccupied, be it by an outside distraction or something more subconscious.
