Four Full Stops - Tansy Spinks




A live, site specific performance at the Parasol Unit, Wharf Road, London N1, April 15th 2013, responding to the work of artist Navid Nuur in his exhibition Phantom Fuel and in particular to the work Where You End and I Begin in which he takes the full stop at the end of his press release and enlarges it 'until the full stop itself posits its own objectivity,' as the press release suggests. This work is framed and exhibited nearby whilst the performer walks the gallery, playing with the many meanings of the word 'dots', as described by Nuur and as understood by musicians presenting a layering of pizzicato resolutions and cadences which act as both endings and perhaps, new beginnings.
With thanks to Navid Nuur and to Idit Nathan for videoing.
