I HEARD SHAKESPEARE WROTE ‘KING LEAR’ IN QUARANTINE

During the height of the covid-19 lock-down I performed seven actions in the empty gallery. The activities were all things people stuck at home during the quarantine have been doing, like exercising, reading, drinking, masturbating, and learning how to bake sourdough bread. The whole performance is presented as a single channel video with the individual actions fading in and out. The title refers to social media motivational messages that prodded us to do great and meaningful things while stuck at home. Total video duration 13:57

Part of the Tipping Point exhibition with Katja Hommel, Karin Kerkmanns, and kate-hers RHEE, at the m3 project space. The exhibition can be experienced virtually here: tippingpoint.aleksslota.com
