Long borders

7th February 2008. Catalyst Arts Gallery, Belfast, Northern Ireland. 25 minutes
Performance for Exchange Places: Pit Bull Terriers Belfast – Helsinki organised by Bbeyond.


I performed a solo piece using a map of Finland and a map of Ireland projected onto two walls facing each other. I attached locations from each map on to locations in the other country using white fine string. At the end I asked the finish artists to have a shot glass of Irish whiskey followed by the Irish artists who drank finish vodka.
