Claire Weetman - The Watermark Performance

TRACE opens a week tonight and we can't quite believe how quickly is has come around. We started planning for TRACE back in January of this year, and as time has passed the project has got more and more exciting with so many interesting artists and makers wanting to be involved, as well as activities we've programmed to really enhance people's engagement in the show and local community of Bedminster around where the gallery is based.

In this final lead up to the exhibition we will be posting blogs more often to generate more excitement and to give you a sneak peak at what to expect from the show.

So without further hesitation the next TRACE artist that we would like to introduce you to is performance artist Claire Weetman.

Claire has been a practicing artist for a number of years having shown work across the UK and internationally. The piece that she will performing at TRACE over the weekend is entitled 'The Watermark Performance'. Having performed the piece originally in Istanbul Claire will use the environment of her surrounds and peoples interaction with the space to mark encounters and movement that themselves will disappear with time.

The piece is a timed piece of work and will be shown once a day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The duration is unknown at present as it depends on weather conditions and how busy the space is. To ensure you encounter the work make a note of the following start times:
Friday 27th, 4pm
Saturday 28th, 2pm
Sunday 29th, 3pm

To watch the performance is completely free of charge and it will take place around the foyer of the gallery (Motorcade/FlashParade on Phillip Street, Bristol) and on the pavement outside, weather permitting.
