An intervention in York

As one of the 6 artists selected and hosted by SLAP, I will be taking ‘Shift, spin, warp, twine’ to York on 28th November, 2014.

Presented in a slightly different context to its previous incarnations in London and Chester, the solo will be reworked as an intervention into the public spaces of York for this event.

How do my actions interrupt, disrupt, and inform what is going on around me? Can my acts of labour intervene in other, more pedestrian acts of labour taking place? How do/can things—material objects— intervene in a public space? Is it something to do with the balance between standing out and blending in? Standing in, perhaps?

These are some of the questions I have.
