This work was created for 'blood sweat + tears', an artist-led project for the opening weekend of the Folkestone Triennial Fringe Festival 2011. The artists shared their discoveries and insights through a series of installations, performances and interventions which addressed issues of identity, visibility, dislocation and transience.'Limits' was the frst drawing I created attempting to draw the visible limits of space with the furthest limits of my body, my feet. The live performance drawing took five hours to create and it attraced a constant flow of onlookers, the crowd getting larger as the drawing neared completion.I also had requests by onlookers to be drawn into the composition so I obliged. They can be seen in the drawing around the periphery of teh page. So it became a drawing of me drawing as I looked down atmy feet on the paper and the crowd gathered around it.
