Don’t Worry I’m an Artist

Materials | Roving performance

As an artist, performance allows me to challenge the border between everyday life and art. One of our most basic instincts is the need for human interaction and by covering myself up I immediately become visible. Don’t Worry I’m an Artist eases audience trepidation by alleviating fear of the unknown. Ultimately this work can begin a conversation about art and what it is. Performance: From 10am every day
