Forthcoming performance commission for Venice Agendas at Folkestone Triennial, weekend of 23rd September 2017.
Dressed in the popular, outdated and clichéd public consensus image of an artist’s outfit, I’ll be seeing if people will provide me with goods and services on the same terms as those often asked of artists, e.g. “it’s great exposure”, “it’ll look good on your CV”, “if you do well I might pay you later” or “real artists do it for love, not for the money”. The title refers to the phrases frequently used in openly advertised work or commissions specifically for artists, such as “unfortunately, no budget is available for the artist”, or “unfortunately, this opportunity is unpaid”. Look for my beret around Folkestone town centre on Saturday 23rd September.
