for

At Home with the Ludskis

at  Rio Cinema

 

For this work we selected a variety of photographs from the newspapers available in the region and treated them as instructions or scores as to what to do with the people we meet. 

 

We approached the audience for At Home with the Ludskis and were able to recreate with them the newspaper photographs.

 

The result is a performance, a photgraph, an Art work, a copy of the original 'score', and documenation all in one. 

 

The titles of the photographs are the original Newspaper headline.

Why I just looked blank when told of the 9 / 11 attacks.

For Manifesta in 2010 The Centre of Attention was invited to produce Pose Plastique.

 We approached the public in the town of Murcia and were able to recreate with them the newspaper photographs.

 The result is a performance, a photgraph, an Art work, a copy of the original 'score', and documenation all in one.
