Festival: 2019

In my practice I am exploring the materials carbon paper and cellotape.

I remove strips of cellotape from a dispenser in a rhythmic and repetitive manner and adhere to carbon paper, then rip the cellotape off again placing it directly onto an interior wall in a site-specific location. This process is repeated innumerable times. The remnants of the used carbon paper become a genuine non-predetermined, simultaneous by-product of the process. Words and concepts that I associate with the remnants are stripped back, fragile, trace, time, patterns, archival and mark-making.

I video and live stream the performative act on Facebook.
