Architecture & Archetypes (2012)
A series of performances to camera exploring the - usually private - behaviours of (a) removing make-up and (b) sleeping, in public places. This work was a response to considering how location and environment affect human behaviour. After the make-up removing performance, artefacts produced during the performance (post-it notes smeared with cosmetics) were subsequently left behind in situ as remainders/reminders of ephemeral actions, that in themselves were also ephemeral. Actions were performed in various locations in and near Sunderland city centre. Photography by Kimberley Emeny.
