Abstract

‘Market Stall Performance, Main Square Cavan as part of Transart Cavan, 2012. (Transart occurred during the All Irleand Fleadh in Cavan.)The artwork that I created as part of ‘’Transart’ 2012, took the form of a Market Stall in front of the Central Post Office on the Main Square in Cavan. The Performance occurred between 2.00pm – 5.30pm. on Saturday 11th. August.The artwork was established as an ‘Interactive Performance’ and during the performance I tried to sell my ‘wares’ within the public arena of the Market Square. My intention was to directly engage the public through subtle humor and surreal imagery, within the various processes and potential transactions. These included ‘Countries for Sale’, Centimeters for sale in an edition of 1/100, Second Hand Teeth, circular pieces of Moon for sale, a NATO Darts Game, Virtual Reality Goggles, etc. I developed a new interactive work for this performance entitled “Buying Time”. In this aspect of the work the participant pays in order to gain time. The wear a specially designed headset and goggles, are seated for a pre-ordained time and then returned to normal reality…. Having gained time.I chose to perform as a Market Trader in order to engage the public audience directly as they were not aware of it as a ‘performance’ within the category of art. It was therefore camouflaged and the public, while in ‘shopping mode’, encountered ideas within the structure of the artwork or were forced to ask questions about the nature of my business/performance transactions.The Performance occurred between 2.00pm – 5.30pm. on Saturday 11th. August.“Market Stall Cavan” as part of ‘Trans Art Cavan – Festival of Contemporary Art. Market Square Cavan.
