Here I occupied a hospital bed in the during opening hours of gallery. I could only leave the bed when a gallery visitor donated their time, replacing me in the bed. The hospital bed was juxtaposed with a space for theoretical seminars, which for the duration of the show examined the relationship between praixs and theory.
Liminality followed on from a year long collaborative project with a work of heart and lung transplant patients (see Leaky Self for more information). The film short here I used to say it was gold, but really it's a platinum one, Platinum (2011) deals with the experience of life after heart or lung transplantation. This film examines the potentially explosive experience of subjective hybridity where a malleable space between the embodied same and other is found. This film was funded by the Arts Council of Ireland via the artists in the community scheme, administered by Create the National Agency for Collaborative Arts.
