The first in a new series of Trust me, I'm an Artist performances, Martin O'Brien shows his work.
In this new durational performance, commissioned by The Arts Catalyst, O'Brien turns his attention to the fear of contamination associated with the sick body. In doing so, he highlights recent acute public anxiety around the risk of infection and the surge in depictions of the zombie in popular culture.
O’Brien’s performance will be followed by a discussion with a specially convened ethics committee of Dr Karen Lowton (Department of Sociology, University of Sussex), Dr Gianna Bouchard (Department of Music and Performing Arts, Anglia Ruskin University), and Lois Keiden (Director, Live Art Development Agency), chaired by Professor Bobbie Farsides (Brighton and Sussex Medical School).
