Research output: Non-textual formPerformance


re-member (3) a solo performance in three parts by Ailsa Richardson, video created in collaboration with video artist Mel Shearsmith

when we re-member we re-collect, put things back together
a re-membering follows a dis-membering
after a loss we put our selves and our bodies back together in a new and different alignment
our re-membering defines us
the definition is up to us
infinite in possibility

This performance has been through many reincarnations and this latest one is a re-making of the performance 10 years after the initial video was made. It becomes another layer of remembering and interplay of the live action of the artist’s body with the virtual artist’s body (recorded in the video) of 10 years past. On this occasion is forms part of a weekend workshop in west Wales with Stephen Jenkinson exploring our cultural relationship to death and dying, an event organised by 'Holy Hiatus'.
