Caught in a Trap
Sculptural intervention, with plaster and glass, performance intervention with conversation, audio recordings on headphones, performance with surveyors, drill and plaster
A line of disturbance passes through a gallery, resulting in a series of holes, drilled and then filled, in walls and glass windows and doors. When the line passes out of the gallery, it becomes a knock on a door and a request to drill through in inhabitant's poroperty. All conversations are recorded with permission, and played back on headphones in the gallery. 40 doors are knocked on, 23 conversations are recorded, 3 people agree to have their home drilled through. On the opening night of the exhibition, the surveyors who plotted the line through the gallery return to project it to through a house whose owner agreed to be drilled, with the evening culminating in the drilling and filling of a hole.
