2010/11
Brighton, London, Liverpool

'image in 4 pieces' is a meditation on seeing – how it both transmits and disrupts our perception of others, and our selves (seen through the eyes of others perhaps?).

A paper installation holds both a seemingly vulnerable performer and her audience. They watch her go from one action to an unexpected next, interacting with the repeated graphical shapes: screen and cloud, mask and photographs...

She continuously transforms the space and herself; rolling, unveiling, hiding... until she discovers the audience and turn them into her, or into their vision of themselves.

Only the rustle of paper can be heard.

Duration: 25-30 minutes.
