Live performance, approx. 2.5hrs, shown as part of Mind the Mind Gaps, at Gallery 202, Central Saint Martins, 2020.
A durational live piece exploring Queer Monstrosity, Northern identity, and weaponising the threatened/threatening body, through the penultimate action of the Lambton Worm folktale. The single action of this piece was tying 6 inch nails to my limbs and chest with neon green rope, facing outwards like the spearheads on Sir John Lambton's armour when he fought and killed the wyrm.
