Performance and video screening (2016), music by Yewel J


Gunk Tact is a re-edit of the video work ... (globb), using it as a moving visual backdrop for a live performance. The performance was based on a 'toasting' (a rhythmical recital of text over beats in the style of a MC) by using a string of associative thoughts on the qualities of the deep-fried Bitterballen, suggestive of the 'Friday Feeling' of the Dutch borrel scenario. Wet toilet paper was flung onto the projected image to created a layered textured surface, distorting the image of the projected video whilst referring to the British pub-toilet customs of my youth.
