Viewing single post of blog Performance in still image

I saw Jill Magit’s work in one of our workshops I believe. Her work really left an impression on me as I really love performance art and her’s is just so different from others. In the future, I want to start more projects around performance art and her artwork called Still from Trust, from 2004 inspired me to want to step out of my comfort zone.
The artwork
It was a multimedia work based on a thirty–one–day performance in Liverpool and composed of a CCTV footage and a novella. The idea was to be lead by the city’s surveillance, dressed in a red trench coat with her eyes shut. The project engages the system into an intimate, two–way dialogue and alludes to the extreme degree of trust which surveillance practices demand of us.
