TIME IS MONEY

A series of 50 short duration actions carried out in a fluxus style list, I explore the absurdity of particular movements and try to resist the consumption of my body, it being forced into a duality in performance of event, and simultaneous making of memory.

I use short duration not only to challenge the art worlds fetishisation, hierarchy and standardisation of 'duration' meaning long duration, but also to resist the accelerated natures of late capitalism.

Time in Money was researched while on a one week residency with Studio Ilka Theurich, Hannover, Germany.
