Food bin

The performance features a 10 minute recording of the artist talking about the state of the food bin in her current house share. She sits on a chair drinking tea while the recording plays, eventually pouring tea over herself and smearing sour cream and chive dip over her arms.

Can be viewed via video or sweeping overview

Food bin was part of an all female group exhibition: Burn The Witch. Featuring artists: Zeena Altai, Katie Grenville, Sarah Nahas, Mary-Ann Stuart, Toraigh Watson, Llinos Owen and Jasmine Aldridge.
