2019, performance

G39, Cardiff – 14th June 2019

Presenting the culmination of a research residency in the G39 library and the formal opening of G39’s DVD library, the Last Blockbuster used tropes of early cinema, traditional artist performance and TV panel shows to create an unwieldy and frenetic experience. By breaking down the expected narrative of an opening event, the performance challenged us to rethink the everyday, to consider our privilege and levels of comfort as both useful and disgusting, within the context of uncertainty about our immediate futures and our collective paralysis.
