‘Lulu Goldman Deceased Performs Live In The Mortuary!’
Hundred Years Gallery, 06.04.2017
Performed at Hundred Years Gallery as part of ‘Salomania’, a joint exhibition with the painter Julia Colmenares, from 31st March – 9th April 2017. These documentary photos were taken on 06.04.2017 when the performance formed part of The Whitechapel Gallery’s First Thursdays Bus Tour. In this performance I reprise my long running persona: the dead prostitute and failed Bunny Girl Lulu Goldman Deceased. I have been performing as Lulu since 2014. The large images were taken by Liam Taylor, and the smaller images by Montse Gallego at Hundred Years Gallery.
‘Lulu Goldman Deceased: A Disturbing Case’
The Last Breath @ The Clearlake Hotel
This was a durational site specific 12 hour live performance at The Clearlake Hotel, Kensington in which I was first possessed by and took on the identity of Lulu Goldman Deceased, prostitute and failed Bunny Girl; tragically murdered in 1970 by Mr Cropper and still haunting Chelsea with my co-operation and assistance…
I created the work using live performance, automatic drawings, installed objects and audio.
It was curated by the For One Night Only Collective, and other artists included The Chapman Brothers, and was inspired by the original television series ‘Randall and Hopkirk Deceased’ as well as waifs and strays resident at The Clearlake Hotel since the 1970s …
The title of the performance is inspired by one of the episodes of ‘Randall and Hopkirk Deceased’ as are some of the titles of the drawings.
I also have two long standing collaborations…
