REPAIR STATIONS at the Pheonix Gallery, Brighton
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.
