figure and ground: Plymouth

A two-day durational performance as part of Performance Market, The Pigs of Today are the Hams of Tomorrow, Plymouth Arts Centre, 22nd – 23rd January 2010.

I worked at a stall in the Pannier Market Plymouth over two days embroidering two shirts and talking with market users and festival visitors. The words in the embroidered scrolls were found in the market and referred to the male body. A text generated from the conversations formed the basis for a song performed on the stall at the end of each day.
