The Terminal

The Terminal was a 3 day durational performance event held in London in October 2013. The project was curated by Something Human for PUSH 2013.

As one of the artists who checked in to The Terminal, my project involved a becoming-cow to explore the conditions in which animals are transported. Stripped of my papers (and perhaps my identity) as I entered, I began a series of performance actions conducted on sheets of paper that reflected the size the space allocation for each cow transported in the UK. The traces of these performances, which included chewing the cud and milking, were then made into a cow passport (a requirement for the exporting of live animals) and so my bovine identity was formed.
