Writing performances

Writing performances

2015 to present


Starting in 2015, I embarked on a series of performances in which I wrote to an audience, in front of the audience. The setup has certain constant features:

  1. the writing is improvised on the spot
  2. an image of the surface I am filling with text is projected so that the audience can read the text as I write it
  3. I stop writing once I have filled the surface (a page or a digital document) that I started out with


While the first performances I did in this series consisted solely of this action, Untitled (Signed) performed in London at Secondhome also included images taken during a trip to the Maxacali tribe in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Below are images of some of these performances:
