Live performance, ACCA Pop Up Program, 54th Venice Biennale 2011

For this performance I traveled from Melbourne to Venice with my leg in plaster. I attended the Vernissage of the 54th Venice Biennale and asked participating and well-known artists to sign my cast. I then removed the signed cast and carried it home as a sculptural work.

This project was commissioned by the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art through the ACCA Pop Up Program with support by the Victorian Government through Arts Victoria.
