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.
