APT LIVE -
In September 2016 the collective were asked to perform at APT LIVE an open studio event in Deptford, London. The pair decided to erect a sort of makeshift cloakroom, a red tent in which they ‘played’ at being staff. The performance was called TAG a description of the action and object that the collective attached to any items left with them. Guests could check in their coats, bags and bicycle helmets on the condition that they returned to their owners, labelled and consequently, as participants of performance. The experience was intentionally ordinary, following the model of a standard and expected encounter. The exchange (object for ticket/ticket for object) focuses on the visitor’s item as the participant, involving the everyday object in performance and perhaps altering the way it is perceived after the event.
