Free Fall 2014
27 Jun 2014 : Oxford Art Factory, Sydney, Australia
Two works performed for the performance series Freefall. These performances are within a glass cube in a nightclub. 1/ Reamin’ on Oxford (500 actions riffin’ with a ream of paper), using a ream of white A4 paper (500 sheets) I improvised on my body and in and on the glass cube. With acknowledgments to performance artists Boris Nieslony and Mike Parr, and sculptor Richard Serra. Performed on 27th June. Wearing a suit. 2/ Monochrome Action : the pot calling the kettle black. Painting a can of paint with its own contents, I attempted to coat a can of grey paint with its own contents, drying with a hairdryer and fan, and whiling away the minutes, engaging with the audience beyond the glass walls. Performed on 28th June. I also took time-lapse photos of this work.
