Description of Work

'Field'- Canvas is an attempt to transition from the performative through to visual art status in the ongoing series of Field. Comprised of one still from 'Field' - range 2024, 'Field'- Canvas challenges my art making process to grapple with the interdisciplinarity of the series output as 'other than' performance. Regardless that the work still is 'performative' as an image, now the notion of presence in the work is challenged further.
The work encourages questions concerning the status of performance in a still image. ‘ Is this performance or rather simply performative?’ ‘Can the work transcend the notion of performance and should it?’ ‘Why have I not activated the work with a QR link to the final product of ‘Field’ – White-card as I could have done?’
