This work was informed by research completed with a local women’s group the Ladies K Club from Killeshandra , for which Sally received a Create Artist in the Community R&D Award.
Situated in a small terraced townhouse, four female performers, performed four hours daily, over four days, in four spaces of the house.
The main activities were folding & unfolding sheets, watering mustard seeds, pouring sand & sweeping & gathering up the sand. The performance has two mechanisms, one set the folding & unfolding, the second set messing & cleaning up.
The audience were free to move amoung us, as we performed our repetitive actions,
throughout we remained oblivious to their presence.
