I’ve finally managed to get those pics from my final show in Cambridge Middles, Ends, Beginnings uploaded. There is also a snippet of the text, though the page is not finalised yet.
I’d like to say thanks to all those fantastic people who helped me with the show, most of whom were my former students. I couldn’t have done it without you!!!
So, the countdown to my final performance (at least in terms of conception) Middles, Ends, Beginnings has begun… The first instalment of the performance happens on the 20th Jan, the second a day later with an invited crowd. Am very excited about it, but need to seriously get my head down and actually create the work… watch this space for more information
On Friday, 21st October, Bryony launched her take-over-week at the Junction with a fab party and some special guests. The week promises to continue in this fashion with loads of things happening. Click here for details on the week’s events. For those not in Cambridge, there is another way of getting involved through Operation Narcissus which starts tomorrow. Oh, and for those of you not familiar with Bryonny Kimmings‘ work – check out her website (just click on her name)! Get involved, it promises to be a lot of fun!
It’s been a productive – even if interrupted – week of working in the space. Looks like I’ll have a beginning and a possible end, which seems a bit ironic, considering this is a show predominantly about middles…
Listened to music, made lists, moved things in the space, re-arranged shoes (again and again), bruised myself from falling in love, held hands with a bear, nearly dislocated my hip – thanks Lena! – and continued counting from one to eight.
Images emerged in quick succession – some grand and impossible, others small and silly and then again there were some that might just reappear in the final performance.
Texts are yet to be written, though words are already pressing against my skull – task for next week…
Keep the instructions, texts, music, objects and messages coming! Thanks!
I’m now involved in a really exciting film project called Heat. It is a collaboration between BetterWayProject and MAW (Movement for the Abolition of War). Heat investigates the relationship between climate change and conflict. Check it out!
Tuesday, 2nd August
Lists of instructions, objects, texts and music gathered – where to begin?
Images of miniature ballerinas, bears and other figurines on park benches, holding hands… one two three four five six seven eight… cars, trains, boats… one two three four five six seven eight… and then it’s already 11.30 – time for a break, yes a diet coke break…
