Body Series (2013-16) is a collection of performances investigating how I see myself and how others see me.
I think about what my body can do and how it is meant to behave.
With Body Series, I place my fat, hairy, female, scarred, queer body into different contexts.
This work is not about shock but tenderness, consent and choice.
A four hour durational performance exploring the history of celebrity fitness DVDs through the decades. Moving from Jane Fonda to Davina McCall via Cher, Katy Price and Gerry Halliwell.
One-on-one performance in which I offer the audience free shots of Tequila from my body.
One-on-one performance over Skype in which the audience ‘have’ me for 5 mins. They have paid so I am there for them!
A one-on-one performance asking the audience member to stop and really take a look at this body in front of you.
A durational interactive installation.
The audience are invited to paper mâché my body with an image or text of their choosing from the material provided. (2013)
