Eloise Fornieles | Fierce Festival | 29 March - 8 April 2012
Fierce Festival of Performance Art | 29 March - 8 April 2012
The Message is a performance and installation by the canal in Birmingham on the Edible Eastside site. It will comprise mounds of chalk evoking an undulating landscape. There will be a marble sculpture boxed in a wooden crate on top of one the mounds. You are invited to write a message of hope or fear on a piece of paper, which I will fold and post into a hole in the crate. I will do this for a week until the crate is full of messages. At the end of the festival the crate full of messages will be set on fire and as it burns the sculpture will be revealed.'
