During the first lockdown, I became interested in the performativity of lockdown routines - performativity of our everyday actions. Particularly attempting to unravel and understand the relationship between:
Conscious Performance vs Unconscious Reality
With my interests deeply rooted in the blurring of art and life, lockdown and the performativity of human behaviour has provided me with material that I can begin to think through and start to develop a project that responds to our current situation. Finding ways in which we can begin to be connected through common action.
With these continuous thoughts on the topic of performativity, I was invited by Katy Morrison (co-curator of PINK, Manchester) to contribute to PINK’s first journal OFF_CENTRE, whose interest and subject for the journal has matched my own.
