‘Hand To Mouth’

Durational performance, Performance Space, London

Details of exercises/tasks that lead to my performance ‘Hand to Mouth’ here

Following the tasks and performances such as ‘Crate’ and ‘Fallow’, in particular I became fixated by making sound physical through incantatory movement, action and text and automatic drawing guided by interaction with visitors and my own vocal projections- feedback has been that my performance centred around choreography, cinema and dance- it reminded visitors of Japanese dance Bhutto and what I did was cinematic in narrative and ritual, whilst being controlled and playful. This is interesting to me since I’d also describe this as central to my installations, videos, sculptures etc.I am just about recovering now from what happened during the four days, it was certainly a test of will and questioning of the nature of art practice.  I was picked up from the venue for fear I may be ‘too’ altered purely on the basis of sleep deprivation, exhaustion and processes such as fasting.

For me it became clear that all strands of my practice my live art depends upon my need to engage an audience and their presence and participation contribute towards the triggering of my actions. Byproduct for me is an ‘altered state’ for the self of the artist, though for some this is the primary objective and motivation.
