Narrating a Wall

Performance in Edinburgh College of Art Sculpture Courts as part of Borders Borders, 2017.

An act of live spontaneous speech with a microphone and PA system from within a wall holding a concealed plaster mantlepiece. This included continuously improvising descriptions of the mantlepiece and proposing possible narratives of the characters represented in it, commentating on activity around the wall during the exhibition, and speaking to visitors who began voicing their own opinions about the institution and its architecture.
