Catrin Jeans is an event-based artist practicing in Dundee. Last summer she constructed a 24hour endurance performance in Generator Projects, designed to encourage viewers to participate as artist’s in a performance through an internationally familiar medium; a game of football. This has been her favourite project to date – though she hopes she hasn’t peaked too early and strives for future success with her current projects ‘Crawl Inclusive‘ and ‘Apocalypse Now Now‘.
