"STILLNESS" Group Show at Bloc Projects Sheffield January 2015

This group show allowed me the chance to explore performance art, a genre totally outside my usual way of working. In my work I'm usually witnessing the world in one way or another and for this project I wanted some sort of 'witnessing of the witness' to take place or a possible 'witnessing of an act of witness. At times it verges on the ridiculous, but overall am very happy with the results.
