Cross-Section: Day 8

Cross-Section: day eight
acrylic mirror, blackboards, black flags, red ribbon, rope, stools, sandbags
– live performance by Emma Collard and Katie Lee

Cross-Section was a live performance/sculpture in which I pushed, manoeuvred and displayed a series of sculptural objects in and around the grounds of the Abbotsford Convent over a 14 day period. Each day I used the buildings, trees, infrastructure and businesses as the context for the work. These gestures were recorded on video footage that I played back on four video monitors located around the site. This footage accumulated over the 14 day period, revealing past actions and interventions around the site.
