L(I’VE) (a) (HE)ART

L(I’VE) (a) (HE)ART is a one-on-one intimate piece of live art taking place covertly from within the crowd. The inspectors listen to my heartbeat through the use of a doctors stethoscope.

This performance débuted at the Manifold: Dance & Performance Art Platform hosted by TiLT Dance at The Kazimier, Liverpool: as a direct response to the Kazimier closing. Between each individual performance, the ear-section of the stethoscope was wiped clean, and the wipes placed in a ‘Donations Bucket’ as a symbolic representation of a cultural hub being wiped away from Liverpool as the location closed at the end of 2015.
