Commentary

Invited by Penny University to informally present a work in progress, with Justin Gosker I delivered a commentary for a part-finished book on the ‘Suit’. With the project in suspended animation: between a new ‘Suit’ being made and an existing version coming to the end of its lifespan, I wore a cotton toile for the anticipated replacement and walked visitors through the work’s archive, presenting the diverse methods with which six years of unnanounced performances are documented.
