My Private Wee Island was a durational performance in Northern Ireland. A small island that disappears. Maybe this is already a reality in a few years. For this performance I used the rising tide in Belfast Lough. In low tide I climbed on a rock that uses to disappear during high tide. A dry suit under a black business suit helped me to stand there for some hours. Expanding previous work of the WSM series on new creative methodologies (cross contextualization) employing strategies and cultural contexts of durational performance and tide related projects. Experiential water projects,drawings, texts and lens based footage. Desk based research into climate change and natural forces in the wider context of contemporary discourse in art and science.
