Skype performance

I presented my first live work, Hospitality, at WW Gallery as part of First Thursdays from 6-9pm on 7th July. A live video link from my studio relayed the production of fake Bombay Mix by hand, using coloured waxes.

This piece explores themes of the handmade, repetitive labour and fakery. The work is an irreverent take on the idea of the open studio. It was intended to make a quietly rebellious statement against what I perceived as an aversion to the artist's hand in contemporary practice.
