[Yasmin_announcements] PERFORMANCE IMAGES

**Apologies for any cross-posting**

Colleagues and friends

Please find below a link to view and download images from our most recent site specific, durational performance in Penzance, entitled 'Untying the Knot'. You will not need to register to 'Steekr' to access the files... just open the folder, click 'select all' and either click the 'Slideshow' tab or click 'Play'. You can also download the images by clicking 'Download'. The images are labeled 1-31 to correspond with the order of the performance (the slideshow starts on the last image strangely).

We would like to thank Oliver Sutherland, Brigitte Ariel Newman, Frances Williams, Tim Crowley, James Harvey, Ian Whitford and Alison Sharkey for documenting the performance so thoroughly, it made editing a real challenge.

We would also like to extend our thanks to all those people that kindly donated clothing (800 in total), and everyone that helped out before, during and after the performance, as without your help we wouldn't have been able to gone ahead with it or realised it as we had expected... thank you. A special thanks to Andy Wheeler, his boatman colleague, Rebecca Weeks and Ian Whitford for their help and support, Patrick and Jane Lowry, Ramon Vallejo, Tom, John Stanbury, Alexandra Glanville, Hilmare Hotz, Adrian Sellers, John Christie, Sam Kirby, Bernie and Andrew Munson. Our thanks also goes to everyone who joined us and contributed on the day.

Thank you

Please feel free to contact us if you have any queries.

Best Wishes

Subject: THIS SATURDAY- 'Untying
the Knot' performance at Insite Live Art event

Dear friends and colleagues,

You are most welcome to attend the following:

This Saturday (18th July) in Penzance, Zierle and Carter will be performing their latest site specific performance piece Untying the Knot.

They will be on the Penzance promenade throughout the day from 10am - 9.30pm, exploring faded relationships/friendships, connections with people that over time have been lost or broken.

This visually alluring and memorable performance will invite the audience/passers by to actively contribute, creating a continually expanding trail of 'remembrance' using 600 items of clothes that have been donated, creating a trail a few hundred metres long. At around 7pm, on the beach opposite The Beachfield Hotel the trail will be transformed through a symbolic act. The work will build towards its finale at sunset at 21:21. Wine, juice and delights will be served.

Please bring your binoculars and suitable clothes for all weather conditions!

Untying the Knot is part of a free one-day performance art trail for the Insite event (more information below), that has been co-organised by six contemporary performance artists: Rebecca Weeks & Ian Whitford from Art Dept in Penzance, Andy Whall and Delpha Hudson based in Marazion, and Paul Carter and Alexandra Zierle.

We do hope that you can make it on Saturday and look forward to receiving your contributions,

Best wishes

Paul & Alexandra
