(300 x300 x 300 cm) Performance with wood, mud, horsehair, cotton, velvet, metronomes, 2013
In this collaborative piece with textile artist Egle Jauncems, we tried to use narrative in a somatic way to create a performance within an installation. The installation’s purpose was to alter the way viewers moved around the space; weaving themselves between the ropes of hair and wool which echoed the way the piece was made. The mud frame dissected the space; hampering the viewers’ entry and providing a place to brush against feeling the textures of the piece. The performance centred on a fragmented text whispered and sung between the performers. This further abstracted a story to allow viewers the freedoms of their own mythologies.
