Burgoyne will show an evolving durational work/ film called Island workout; a performance made on the first weekend of the festival, set within
the raised space above the Warrior Square conveniences. Burgoyne will be seeking to immerse us in its island like status. The film shows the live performance, which sees Burgoyne along with other participants move back and forth following the changing, sporadic rhythms of
the traffic and tide, bringing this tempo into the space. The resulting film sees a static toilet roof become a turbulent site seemingly swaying and rocking, as the absurd keep-fit workout unfolds.

Kimvi’s personal struggle with drawing and an interest in markmaking enables performative actions to manifest within her creative process. She often uses her body to create the mark or be the mark itself.kimvi.co.uk

“The setting, I think, is important when approaching video work and the eventual actions that go into it. I’ll actively seek areas which the live setting of my performance can’t satisfy, areas of public disinterest or out of the public gaze but still within the public domain”.
