FOOTE & MOUTH. There's a Special Place... Review. APRIL 2016

There's a Special Place in Shell 27.04.2016

There’s a Special Place in Shell…
27 April 2016, 7pm
Reid Auditorium, Reid Building, The Glasgow School of Art
There’s a Special Place in Shell… is a new performance by Foote & Mouth that explores the role of the Banshee and the Siren. By focusing on these characters, the work creates a dialogue between two folkloric female archetypes and the degradation of women through patriarchal mythologies. These themes are pursued through animation, text, song, costume, and comedy. The Banshee and the Siren glean their sense of agency from three overlapping features: voice, water, and death.
Foote & Mouth is a performative duo between Kathryn Ashill and Monica Foote. Their mutual interest in props, theatricality, and spectacle has brought them together.
Amateur dramatics, theatre flats, stage lighting, public monuments and performance are central to Ashill’s practice. Kathryn aims to pursue the theatricality in the everyday whilst sharing her observations on autobiography, people, history and site. There is a strong participatory spirit within the live performances Ashill creates. Within her practice, Monica Foote plays the role of animator, performer, and choreographer. In compartmentalising the roles of the artist, Foote’s practice effaces the notion of the homogenous individual, which is in line with her broader interest in the spiritual, cultural, and folkloric codes that people use to escape the limitations of the self. 

International Women's Day 2016

Cyborg Baby. Hearing test.

This International Women's Day was a poignant one for me as I walked in the footsteps of many great women before me and gave birth. My son was born on this momentous day. This marks a huge milestone for me both personally and artistically. The following posts are updates for the artistic developments in my practice during 2016. I have been busy both with art and motherhood!
