Body Zero Body Double

12 Jul 2015

To conclude The Royal Standard: LIVE!, Louisa Martin presented a new performance work.

This work dealt with inheritance; what does this generation value as tools for self-definition and how is this captured by society? She will venture beyond the surface of social standing, material things and identity politics and uncover what it is to own and pass on feelings in a domain which has been commercialised.

In a marked rectangle on the floor of the gallery space, Martin acted as a mimic to any audience member who entered, copying their actions and observing their behaviour. This performance blurred the line between artist as performer and artist as interpreter.
