Wolf in the Winter - The Blind Leading the Blind Tour - Modern Art Oxford

A performance made as a guest of Wolf in the Winter: www.wolfinthewinter.com

The invitation was to devise a performance in response to Pieter Bruegal's famous painting, 'The Blind Leading the Blind' (1568)

I found a striking calendar of Hollywood actor Brad Pitt on the wall in the staff kitchen at Modern Art Oxford, which I wore over my face for a durational group performance, imagining that I was hosting 'An Evening with Brad Pitt'. As with most live events, there was a number of photographers documenting everything using flash photography, so covering my face with a photograph felt quite liberating; perhaps a similar feeling that those in the 'public eye' feel when they go temporarily unnoticed by cameras.

It turned out by fluke that Brad Pitt had visited Oxford only a few weeks earlier (see below)

The photo below was taken by an audience member, and is obscured by powder that was used in another performance.
