Rachel Macmanus will create a durational public performance at Vault Artist Studios, Belfast.
The performance will involve the artist packing and unpacking a large suitcase full of items over a period of several hours and functioning as a social commentary on consumerism, ownership and the anxiety of increasingly chaotic lifestyles. Often the matriarchal figure bears the responsibility of packing and organising the household’s belongings and in this way the work affords an opportunity to examine the role of women as caregivers.
This performance art event will happen outside the Vault building and is intended to be encountered by passers-bys as well those who intentionally attend.
