It has been ages since I blogged on bodders blog because I have been busy undergoing my research and development project 'Grabbing Live Art by the Horns' and updating my progress on that blog! (see link from this blog) blogs blogs blogs!

It hasn't all been going, seeing, researching. I have also been receiving some fantastic mentoring from Curious and Wendy Houstoun and as a result have all sorts of exciting things tucked up my sleeves ready to jump out in 2012... fingers crossed.

I would like to share this photo with you, of all the props that I had under my bed displayed on a table in preparation for the 'mini marathon of performances' shown to Curious artists Helen Paris and Leslie Hill.

I also want to mention two performance events that recently happened. The first was a return of other/other/other's housecall which we did a lot of in 2010. The idea is to show works to each other in someone's house so it is kind of semi-public. The work can be completely new or a revised piece but it has to take on the specifics of the house/site. In September we did 'Mousecall' located on Norwich's Mousehold Heath.

It was a great day of sharing work and being on the heath. Dot Howard and I used the opportunity to show some work in progress from a project about human relations with animals, and performed a sound piece calling after lost pets. The photo (taken by Dot Howard) shows little Apache Sunrise and Champian Heartache.

Another new endeavour! I was commissioned by artist Will Teather to devise a performance to accompany his solo exhibition showcasing a series of paintings about 'the remarkable disappearing and reappearing Maudeline Spacks' see Maudeline Spacks is a vanishing artist who one night vanished forever. At 7pm on wednesday the fifth October, she re-appeared in person at the Assembly House in Norwich. A member of the audience managed to snap this glimpse before she disappeared again...
