DUALITY animated stills (2018) 

In this documented performance, my wrists are tied with black string to show the permanent nature of our (my sister and I) relationship. During the performance my brushes start from the top of the frame and are dragged downwards, in doing so they leave a black painted mark on the wall. My left hand represents me, the right my sister. The last frame of the animation captures the point at which the string is taut symbolising our connection regardless of geographical distances and the paint marks show the gestural journey. Here it pauses, then continues the journey again.

This work involves my own 'singular' body. I had complete control of where, when and the conditions under which the performance and photography would take place. The process highlighted that my sister might not always be around but I need to make my own choices.
