Capes and Masks

 

Performance Space,

Hazelhurst Gallery,

 

"Capes and Masks" is part of a series of experiments that play with the idea of displaced, anonymous or secret audiences.  Here the public become the work.  It consists of a story of longing, which can only be heard through a set of headphones which are embedded in the cape and mask.  The audience member, still and listening becomes the image of a frozen creature/vigilante a sculpture which is both watching and watched.
