Abstract Background With One Or Two Figures, at the 19th Biennale of Sydney: You Imagine What You Desire, with the collection of the Art Gallery of New South Wales
performance dates: 18 March - 30 March 2014, twice a day

*Much has been said and written about the controversy around the Biennale's main sponsor Transfield, and I hope the discussion continues. A few weeks before the opening I made the decision to withdraw my work from the Biennale of Sydney as this was no longer in line with my ethics and the work I was going to present. Furthermore I did not see the polarized Biennale as the right stage to perform on. It was a difficult decision as the idea to 'boycott' the arts is a negative one, but under these cirumstances for me the only right decision. For more elaborative writing on the subject find some texts here on the website of Discipline.
