IN PETTO

A performance piece using ink, fabric and water

This piece is a two person performance, created in collaboration with Katherine Jones. Words are written onto sheets of fabric, that when washed, are released into a bowl of water. The longer the duration of the performance, the more words

washed, the darker the water becomes. The sheets are then hung to dry on a series of lines placed between the person washing, and the person writing. Traces of words remain on the fabric, and over the table top where the ink has bled through - as something once said which can't be taken back. Something withdrawn, is betrayed by the remnants of it's presence. Like muscle memory. The sheets of fabric like dermal layers, retain what's written within.
