Check out this performance work I made and performed in India.
It’s called ‘Can You/How To/Attempting To Unfuck The World/Yourself/Myself’. Think that says it all really.
It goes through 5 meditations to help with Unfucking.
1. Let it Out. Cathart. Fuck-it Meditation
2. Crying Helps. Weep for the World/Yourself/Myself
3. Share it (or don’t)-the angst, the pain,the frustration
4. Feel the Impotence/Feel the Power. Give a Fuck
5. Fight/Surrender to the Fuckedness
Check out the video and more about the work here:

Thanks to the Mornington Peninsula Council I will be spending the next 2 weeks making art and living in this amazing historical cottage at Point Nepean, Portsea, over looking the ocean. Being inspired. Making friends with the resident maggies and creating a new body of work. More to come on that!
For the next six weeks I’ll be immersed in art land with a fabulous group of international artists in the Punjab, India.
