62: Psychological Art Circus at St George’s Circus
The 7-Year Itch

Mixed media on paper
12 x 17.25 inches

An unauthorised performance occupation of the St Georges Circus roundabout and the adjacent derelict Duke of Clarence pub, London SE11, 23/04/05.

Due to last-minute cancellations by some of the troupe, the performance is improvised, somewhat shambolic yet exciting, with the police adding an unplanned epilogue. I engage in awkward object manipulations around the Circus obelisk before proceeding with my overhead projector to the pub to project Live Movies: Anna O makes various slow-motion appearances outside and inside the building.
