Pheonix Gallery, Brighton.

24th – 27th May 2012  11am – 5pm

1.  Bring something you would like repaired

2.  Write down a story

3.  Locate it on the map.

4.  Walk the new routes

Over four days I will be re-mapping the local area based on your stories.  I will be mending your old clothes, replacing buttons, fix fallen hems, broken seams, torn pockets…. in return I am asking for a story about the local area: something someone once told you, official history, a plan for the future, a recollection from last week, or last year… write it down whilst I am sewing and then locate it on a map.  At the end of the four days a new map will be made and sent out to all participants to use for extraordinary journeys.

Repair Stations is a participatory performance project set up to bring together the two protective actions of sewing and walking.
