Poor Copy


Working with performance, video, photography and text, I am using fan art and verbatim theatre as models of making to explore two events: Michael Jackson’s speech at the grounds of Exeter City Football Club, Devon in 2002 (which many mistakenly believe to be an urban legend, or to have been performed by a lookalike), and a Michael Jackson gig in Barnstaple, Devon in 1999 (which was performed by a lookalike, though many audience members dispute this).

A work in progress performance, No Such Event Took Placewas performed at Exeter Phoenix in October 2016. This accompanied a video installation and bookwork, exhibited at Gallery 333. Thanks to A-N for making this a pick of the week.

This is an ongoing body of work.
