Performance

A performative stream of consciousness, a mixture of reminiscence and evasion, an all embracing impulse, a surveying and mapping of something yet to come. A manifestation of writings about my tongue and my experience of returning to Margate - the town where I grew up. How does it feel to try to write a text or create an art work that was borne from the same maddening frustration that comes from re-inhabiting a place that is in a state of flux and played a significant part in my early adulthood.
