Damara

Damara. 2010

Performance. A4 Photographs. Framed

Work from my 1st year of my degree.

The title is based on a song by Patrick Wolf named Damaris. ( see:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damaris_(song) )

The name Damaris appears in the New Testament and is the hellenization of the name Damara. ( see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damaris )

In Celtic mythology , Damara was a fertility goddess associated with the month of May and the Beltaine festival that was historically celebrated on the 1st of  May in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man. It was also believed that this goddess ruled over youth, innocence, and the imagination.

Seduce Then Intercept. 2009

Andrea Macario, Ashley Bailey & Emilie Gordon.

Live Performance.

There is no documentation of the performance

apart from this photo which was part of the

installation.

Installation of a made-up museum/grotto of the

History of female art and female performance

Artists working with the idea of the female

experience and the body between 1960-1990.

This Included books, Images and objects carefully

placed in the space.

Outside the entrance to the space was the artist       

Emilie Gordon dressed in the stereotypical attire

of a 50’s housewife ushering the audience in groups of 2-4 persons.

Once entering the space one was confronted by

the compulsive collecting of ephemeral objects

Of the artists influences, creating a shrine-like

museum dedicated to previous female

performance artists. Along side this shrine you

Were confronted by a nude female reading a sex guide for house wives of the 18th

century whilst another female was clothed in cabaret attire and masturbating.
