The Man I Am Today - Sharon McElroy, Wimbledon College of Art (MiAL)
'The Man I Am Today' was filmed at various locations in the South East of England, some of which have military connections. In the accompanying audio we hear five men discuss the military uniforms they wear during Victorian living history and re-enactment events, their role models and views on masculinity.
'Let its mother stroke its fur because its so mysterious’ - Violet Fingers
Fifteen minute long performance, one woman, one chair, one monologue, one moth eaten rocking horse, one gag, one blindfold, one flowery song. Work considering power, control and desire.
