What’s behind your couch?

By Zoe Lee

They say a picture speaks a thousand words but does it speak them all?

Join Zoe in the celebration of Dawn McCrohan’s life, as she shares memories of their family home.

The interactive durational installation will involve the artist performing everyday rituals, which bring back memories of her past family life. The music from her childhood, the tastes of tea and coffee, and the acts of family living.

“Red, bitch red, blood red, true red, crimson, blush, flush, glower, lost cherry, scarlet, rose, smoulder, flame – these are the colours of our shame.”
(Donkin & Clements, 1993, p. 153)

This installation is the culmination of a year’s work researching auto biographical performance theory and feminist performance techniques.

The work will consist of a large red box, the artist contained in the box, will be naked with a camera on her face. The image from the camera then projected on to a screen. The red box will have apertures. The audience are invited to place their hands into the box. The responding effect thus projected onto the screen.

This performance is restricted to 18+ ages for audience members.
