Leahy, Mark (2012) Muster Page Habit: Flat-head self-tapping. [Performance]

Item Type: Performance
Event Summary: PW12: Plinths/Arnolfini, Bristol, UK /May 2012
Creators: Leahy, Mark
Abstract / Summary:

‘muster page habit’ engages with questions of speaking in public, of being on show, of being heard, and displaying coded behaviour. Deriving elements from Bell’s Standard Elocutionist and online dictionaries, the performance text stitches fragments, word lists, letter, and gestures into a display of awkward flapping interrupted by gnomic expulsions. Standing on a low plinth the performer listens to instructions and phrases on headphones and then repeats these verbally or physically toward the audience.
