The first opening of second year's exhibitions, and one of the ones i looked forward to seeing as it consisted of three different performances by Catherine Rockwood, Anna Mulhern and Dave Whiteley. Catherine performed her own modernised version of the Cock and Cunt play alongside her boyfriend, the piece explored re-enacting the same pattern over and over with Catherine reapplying make up to her face, then taking it off, outcome of this being a pile of used face wipes building up. Dave's piece consisted of him chewing gum continuously, practicing the saying 'too much of a good thing' to the extreme. And Anna's piece a visual background alongside a photo album in which she had edited herself into a random family, whilst she was forging documents as the main part of her performance. All of the pieces were equally as interesting, but the thing that captured me the most was how successful they used the space as well as how interesting the space was as Wolstenholme. There was so much space, and a intriguing, mysterious and quirky atmosphere.
