Artist in Residence, The Ulster Museum in association with Catalyst Arts
Duration: 28 days
Belfast, Northern Ireland
I installed myself in the Museum as a living exhibit. For one month I was confined to a beige bedsit, eating only beige food and wearing beige clothes. I constantly watched documentaries to learn about the outside world. In response to this information I made collages, maps, diagrams, friends and interventions using only beige materials. The bedsit changed throughout the experiment reflecting my mental state. Beginning as a slick, ordered ‘utopian’ environment it soon descended into chaotic squalor, then became a fort and finished off as a semi-organised kingdom.
