Abstract / Summary

The book, ‘Here Are My Instructions’ was published as a companion to the exhibition ‘writing Instructions/reading walls’, curated Olsen and Johanknecht, 2003, Poetry Society, London. Wylde’s artist pages were drawn from the installation and performance event that she made for the exhibition.

'It’sarealdeadringerforlove (a vile little piece of heart warming fluff)’ was a wall-based installation incorporating a micro landscape, texts, drawings of Lassie, and a live performance event ‘barking like a dog in the Poetry Society’. The work drew on Wylde’s two-year, practice-based inquiry into everyday social activities and questions of ‘performativeness’ within live and mediated practices. Research stemmed, initially, from an ‘uncanny’ and uneasy encounter with a man barking like a dog on a London tube, which provoked investigations into some of the complexities and intricacies that exist between language and the ‘non-linguistic’, and between human and non-human social behaviours. The research has resulted in a series of installations, performances, participatory events and video works in a variety of sites and contexts.
