Giles Bailey
Sharing Event January 2023

Giles Bailey’s project looks at links between performance-making and domestic rituals, through a series of practical workshops hosted by people in Whitley Bay, leading to a sharing event in January 2023.

Starting with everyday objects and table-tops, participants in the workshops are guided through the process of writing their own performance score (a term borrowed from music for a predetermined series of actions conceived by an artist and intended to be reinterpreted).

Giles will be working with these scores to create objects which can be used to recreate and share these everyday rituals.

The project is designed to demystify performance art, while thinking about how rituals are part of daily life and an important way we make meaning. Together we find new ways to activate the home with our own significant yet small-scale actions.

Details of the event in January will be available soon.
