Performance at The Physics Room
5pm - 8pm, Thursday 11th July, 2002
Eye to Eye was an extended duration performance piece by Wellington
based artist David Cross. This piece was the latest in a series
of works the artist produced in Australia and New Zealand, exploring
the relationship between the body, abjection and sexuality. Working
at the intersection of performance, video and installation, Eye
to Eye examined the pleasure and pain of seeing, speculating on
new ways of understanding the body as a volatile entity.
