Sally Madge Performance Documented by CIRCA

Sally Madge – Making a Mess and Clearing Up

“Durational Performance Work- 20th March 2010 @ 25SG Gallery

Making a Mess and Clearing Up is a new durational work by Sally Madge which uses the white cube space of 25SG as a blank canvas for an outpouring of automatic drawing, taking the audience on a personal journey through recent art history in a unique suburban setting.

The artist, whilst blindfolded, drew using homemade charcoal for a three hour period. Then during the remainder of the day she cleaned, painted and restored the space to its original state, thus symbolically encasing the traces of the artwork within the walls of the gallery space.

Sally Madge is a Newcastle based artist whose multidisciplinary practice places a particular focus on ideas surrounding contemporary performance. She has recently exhibited and performed at Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art as part of The Dream of Fluxus 2009.
