Installation and Performance/Film
Deej Fabyc with Oreet Ashery, Andy Warhol, Hugo Glendinning, Sarah Pucill, Kim Fielding, Adam Fearon & special guests.
For some time Deej Fabyc has been working on a new transnational large-scale installation, film & performance project, in association with her Artsadmin Residency Bursary.
This project developed from the starting point of looking at the Shooting paintings and the film Daddy by Niki De Saint Phalle. During May 2008 she will build a circular hut inside the Fire Room at Toynbee Studios, made out of recycled materials, and in particular, water bottles, to test some of the ideas in the larger project. She will invite significant female live artists, including Oreet Ashery, to present their own work in tableau on the evening of the 27th of May, in tandem with the documentation of the event in an intrusive collaborative fashion by renowned photographers Kim Fielding & Hugo Glendinning and film maker Sarah Pucill and video artist Adam Fearon.
Inside the hut, Fabyc will be sleeping, but you have to work to find a way in. Andy Warhol's Sleep (loaned by MOMA NYC) will be projected on the side of the Hut. Fabyc is quoting herself stealing a Warhol idea in Paris 15 years ago; before she had ever seen even a still of the film
