The performance is a remake of Brown Paper, a 2001 work by Italo-Australian artist Katthy Cavaliere (1972-2012). Katthy’s original work was made during her undertaking an Advanced course in Visual Arts at Fondazione Ratti, Como, Italy with visiting Professor Marina Abramovic. Katthy sadly died of cancer in 2012.
Over a period of three hours I remade Katthy’s work. I consider the work as a homage to the original as well as a form of documentation re-presenting the live work to a new audience. I had studied some photos of the original work and see this as the score. The remake was presented with great respect to the spirit of the original work and pays tribute to a significant Italo-Australian visual artist.
