Map Giving Ceremony May 2006
DSC_0001.jpg In 2005 / 2006 I participated on a pARTner Residency with the SSW and Monymusk Primary School. During the three-months in Monymusk I encouraged the pupils to re-examine their surrounding using drawing workshops, study tours of the village and interviews with local residences. The outcome of these was Monymusk Interviews and Monymusk Map 2006. The Monymusk Interviews were limited edition Cd's that were given out to all the interviewees and all the children in the school, aswell as being played on internet radio, radiowaves. Five copies of the Map were produced and they were lodged into collections in Monymusk, in the Grant Estate Collection and the Monymusk School Collection, Aberdeen at the Macaulay Institute, Lumsden at the SSW and The Royal Commission on Ancient Historic Monuments Scotland in Edinburgh. I wanted the children to be able to access the map both now and in the future and for that reasons much of the residency was spent in securing the Monymusk Map 2006 in public archives. *************************************************************************************** Children Clapping was performed by Monymusk Primary and is a continuation of a video performance that I have been working on in Glasgow. I use rigmorolish, site sympathic actions to create a dialogue about audience. The audience roles are questioned through space or action giving the audience and the performers the opportunity of redefining their roles. The audience are asked or cajoled into participating in the actions. The tasks that are asked of the performers could be an extension of audience behaviour or intersecting the performance spaces. *************************************************************************************** While working at the SSW I realised some small sculptural works, The Woodend Weather Vane and The Portable Prep Kitchen. ***************************************************************************************
