Abstract:
Why has female nudity become so sexualised? Everyday Nakedness: Accounting turns this question on its head by presenting passing audience members with women, in a state of undress, as they prepare to file their tax returns. Everyday Nakedness: Accounting is a durational performance installation, providing the performers and audience members with the opportunity to engage in spontaneous dialogue and discussion about freelancing, finances, the naked female form and anything that comes up. Through the presentation of the non-sexualised body, this installation comments on how economics and the body are interlinked, and, through calculating the performers' collective financial worth, on the inequality of pay for dance artists in the UK. Performers: Vanessa Abreu, Sylvia Ferreira, Kimberley Harvey, Lorraine Smith
