Some time after my last post, together with producer Andrew Mitchelson who’s supporting me with this project, I’m slowly working my way through a list of people to approach. We’ve thought quite carefully about which galleries and venues feel right for this kind of work, and at the moment I’m interested most in conversations that can lay the ground for future collaborations, thinking about one-to-one performance as a sculptural practice.
The good news is that out of the couple of dozen we’ve so far contacted, a few (three) have come back to say they’re interested in the conversation. In September and October I’ll be travelling for meetings with them.
Also in September and October come the second and third artists’ and producers’ gatherings, in London (at the Live Art Development Agency) and Leeds (with the support of Compass Live Art, at East Street Arts). It’ll be good to get a more intensive and focused period of work on this project (which has inevitably been a bit on and off as I try to squeeze in all the other jobs and life stuff).
