Boss-Man & The Curious Case of Wholegrain Mustard (2014)

Kaleidoscope Gallery, Sevenoaks

On the 31st July, I did a collaborative performance with Simon Merrifield at the Kaleidoscope Gallery in Sevenoaks. During the 2 hours of the private view for the Kent Degree Show 2014, we created a fictional and spontaneous story, the characters dreamed up using members of the audience as inspiration.

 

My role was to secretly select people in the room, and fill out ‘Character Profiles’ using both factual information and entwining it with fictional details. Included on these were name, age, height, weight, appearance, occupation, likes/dislikes and any suggestion of an interesting back story. These were then pinned up on the wall for Simon to read and base his improvised story around.
