Viennese Actionism in a Gallery Cupboard

Winns Gallery 2014

As part of The Drawing Shed’s Ideas From Some(w)here event I was invited to make a performance in the Winns Gallery, London. Being local authority run there were extensive Health and Safety rules such as not being able to mark the walls, no nudity etc. In order to circumvent these rules I decided to perform a nude homage to Viennese Actionism performed in the gallery cupboard and documented by Shahin Shahablou who was also the only audience member. Gallery goers (mostly families with young children) were unaware that this was going on in the cupboard next to them.
