PARA

Para-:, 2014, found wood and copper, 2400x1100x600mm; paper; performance. A bar created by hand from wood found under artspace and copper sheet bought online. During the opening the artist played the role of a Victorian barmaid behind the bar, in a zone of conditional power and safety, within the larger zone of conditional power of the gallery itself. Paired with an essay titled Para-: A Contemporary Working of Parasexuality.
