FIRE - Glasgow, UK 2015

Material: Two parallel pyres 50x50x4000 (reclaimed and recut wood & off-cut chipboard, cardboard, fire lighters, 30 ltrs paraffin, locally sourced bracken, lighter fuel, polyester kindling), red naval distress flares, water, suits, rope, PA (undisclosed set up).

Action: 20 minute reciprocal mouth dragging between two elongated pyres.

Shown as part of Buzzcut in 2015, in the rear courtyard of the Pierce Institute, Govan.  This was a collaborative elemental action between TJB/FKA aka Thomas John Bacon and FK Alexander that creates a dialogue around control & reciprocity in the ontology between two bodies and the elements that surround them.  

Selected by Buzzcut with support from Creative Scotland.  Selected for the Buzzcut Residency 2015 supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation 

With thanks to Kylie Minoise for providing transcendental harsh noise meditation 1 as taken from Endlessly unraveling streamers of thought and rhapsodic speculation. Find out more by clicking here
