Transpiring in the outskirts of a forest opposite a disused Sanatorium, Unformed, 9-hour Endurance saw me engage in laboured movement around a single stone pillar – the trace of each pilgrimage being overwritten by the next, and so on. The works setting, a transformative space of social and psychological distortion, became a temporary residence for many visitors to the festival. Thus, the action was forced upon its audience – sharing their space, the place in which they ate, slept and socialised.
