Carrot and Stick

 Carrot and Stick, performance, duration: 4 hours, 2019

I interact with soft sculptures made using photographs of my body parts. A cross trainer with legs taps me on the arse and a hand on wheels rubs my chest. Weights made from coat racks help me apply silver eye shadow. I collect the sweat produced over the performance and use it with petals and vodka to create ‘perfume’ samples for visitors. Two screens display phrases taken from perfume advert. This happened in the function room above a pub.
