Performance Light Drawing, a “Fish Out of Water”, at ActingUP, At The Vanishing Point Contemporary Art, Newtown. Exhibition launch Thursday 15 July 6-9pm. Exhibtion Dates 15-25 July 2010.
On a platform raised above the crowded bar in ATVP back yard, wrapped in woolie jumpers and coat, I undertook my first performance piece. For the duration of the opening launch party I worked to install a light drawing using 10 meters of LED rope, a hammer, cable clips and A4 image of a pig. The drawing is based on a memory of a lactating sow seen trotting across the road out side a supermarket in Panaji Goa.
