Walking the City
The project was a PLaCE International and showrooms Project.
A series of walks were on offer with various performance artists:
You could drift with Phil Smith, re-awaken your senses with Simone Kenyon and howl into the night with Simon Whitehead.
Sue Maude and Sarah were commissioned to create a collaborative piece of work based on a deep mapping process. For the duration of the Walking in the City they worked in The Parlour Show Rooms responding to each other and the material gathered by others from the walks and talks. They were both exploring the ancient city boundaries, through walking and by referring to maps.
Sue has a specific interest in medieval pottery, Sarah in the subterranean world including waterways.
