I’M WAVING – INTERVENTION 1 – Stomping Ground

Commission, Drawing, Performance, Sculpture

‘Stomping Ground’ involved me and 1 other volunteer towing scented pink bin bags that we'd filled with talcum powder and glitter around the streets of Chelsea. As we dragged them along they slowly split open leaving (depending on which way you want to look at it) a trail of ‘mess’ or a ‘drawing’ behind us. This work is closely linked to another work ‘how to make a painting disappear’ which raises questions about the ephemeral and permanent qualities of contemporary art.
