Public Performances, 30 min - 4 h, 2003
The Circle is a series of public actions carried out in Exeter, London and Edinburgh (UK).
By repeatedly drawing and standing in a circle in a different location - main shopping street, public square, bus station, China Town, graveyard, open field - the artist marked and defined the size of her own personal space, challenging others to step in or stay away.
Sometimes she blended in with the surrounding and other times she became the main attraction.
The piece explored themes such as (self-) alienation, isolation, integration, and public-private space. It was documented with photographs.
