I gave a talk last week to SVAF in Kaleidoscope gallery in Sevenoaks. I called it ‘Collaborations, Costumes and Chaos’ and tried to cover 20 years of my most experimental work. Although some of the pieces I shared are no longer shown on my website, it was/is an important part of developing my practice, and I thought it was helpful for other artists to see my earlier performance pieces.
It is a cathartic process going through old videos and slides, and seeing artworks that perhaps you have forgotten you even made. It reminded me of all the amazing artists/people I have been lucky enough to work with. Also that the essential energy that drove me to be an artist is still there, although my body is somewhat less tone but my mind is a little wiser.
