My paper, ‘A Woman Holding a Liver’, will be published in the forthcoming Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery Conference Proceedings, edited Mark McWilliams, published by Prospect Books, London, in July 2017.
For the 2016 Oxford Food Symposium’s theme Offal, I presented a performance-lecture, A Woman Holding a Liver, which contextually and artistically explored the practice and history of haruspicy or liver divination, followed by the divination of a lamb’s liver.
It began with an outline of the ancient practice of haruspicy. I showed examples of liver divination represented in art and material culture, and contextualized the practice from my personal and artistic perspectives, as well as in relation to chance strategies in art history. I outlined my methods for performing an examination of a liver, drawn from a wealth of classical scholarship, before undertaking an inspection of a lamb’s liver. The paper then reports on the examination, and findings in relation to the question collectively decided by the audience-participants.

ACTS RE-ACTS 4: Performance Laboratory, Wimbledon College of Art, London
20 February - 17 March 2017
Performance Lab: Friday 3 & Saturday 4 March 2017
“It feels like there is still room for genuine subversiveness within performance [practice]. For someone from Fine Art, part of the excitement and the openness is being the amateur next to someone working with a kind of Theatre.”
Curator Sarah McRory speaking about the work of Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, interviewed by Lois Rowe at ICA as part of Performance Management, February 2016.
Acts Re-Acts, a laboratory of performance, new media, workshops, lectures, discussions, events, interventions, seminars and installations, returns for a fourth year to take place at Wimbledon Space between 20 February – 17 March 2017. This year Acts Re-Acts will take the form of an intensive two-day laboratory of selected performances on Friday 3 and Saturday 4 March. Four week-long residencies will run Monday – Friday between 20 February – 17 March, and an exhibition accompanying the performances will be on show for the duration of the project.
I will be performing A Woman Holding a Liver 2016/17 on Saturday 4 March at 1pm in the studio theatre, and exhibiting The Liver Models 2017, a series of monoprints taken directly from lambs' livers in the acccompanying exhibition.

Books as Bodies, Bodies as Books is a new performance-talk that I have created for the Wellcome Library on Thursday 17 November, from 6-7pm. It will explore books as bodies and bodies as books - birthing scrolls, reading as rumination, livers as tablets, folds as metaphors of digestion, and palimpsests and skin.
Books as Bodies… is part of Wellcome Library Insights, a series of events which offer the opportunity to explore a theme or topic, whether a long-held or new interest, whilst showcasing the Wellcome Library’s collection.
Tickets are free but need to be reserved via this link, https://wellcomecollection.org/events/books-bodies-bodies-books
