The Pigs of Today are the Hams of Tomorrow (2010)
Example of Documentation Work
As part of Marina Abramovic’s symposium, The Pigs of Today are the Hams of Tomorrow, I worked with the documentation team headed by Tim Dollimore and Siobhan McKeown. In collaboration with a group of camera operators and video editors, we documented the whole event, recording and editing a series of eight films in the course of five days, ready for the opening of Plymouth Arts Centre’s exhibition entitled the same: The Pigs of Today Are The Hams of Tomorrow.
In particular, I worked in the live editing lab concentrating on the work of Eva and Franco Mattes: I Know That Its all a State of Mind, the Red Ape collective’s performance series, and the work of the artists in the Performance Market.
I do not have permission to share the edited versions of the artists involved in the Red Ape or the Performance Market projects but performance and documentary artist Sven Goyvaerts, who was responsible for the live and subsequent dissemination of the event, has been granted permission by Eva and Franco Mattes to publish a copy of the video through his Vimeo feed.
