A day in a Role - residency with Vestas Blades, 2007










A day in a Role - residency with Vestas Blades, the Isle of Wight

As part of the placement, Ania decided for one day do the work of somebody else. She was a cleaner, a shop floor worker, a secretary, a chef, a manager, a security lady - she did 13 different jobs in total. 13 day long performances. At the end she offered a residency for Vestas employees - to be an artist for a day and do her 'job'. Two people applied and one got the residency. Penny (the new resident artist) organised lunch long 'tag a friend' project.

The project has been developed by Arts Council England in partnership with Arts and Business South East, as part of the Interact scheme, which offers artists the opportunity to develop their practice in an innovative industry context.

i felt:
inadequate
causing confusion
amateurish
often useless
inefficient
pathetic
lame
excited
animated
electrified
feverish
puzzling others
questioning
revealing
putting 'common & normal' in focal point

and more :)
