A PERFORMANCE ART EVENT BY MARK HARVEY

 

Wrap Me Up, Make Me Happy (The Helper’s High Remix)

 

SATURDAY 29 APRIL 2006, 6PM

THE PHYSICS ROOM

FREE

 

 

 In Wrap Me Up, Make Me Happy (The Helper’s High Remix) Harvey will attempt to wrap himself up in cardboard in order to turn himself into a Transformer™. Reflecting on the contexts of making action art through the physical limits of an imposed body (a cardboard exoskeleton), as well as the constructions of social conformity and acceptability, Harvey’s humorous construction explore the artist’s investment in an audience and audience desire.

 

The Helper’s High Remix extends from a series of performances Harvey has developed over the past two years, which have churned and cheered up audiences, starting with his video Tony and His Mirror (2004). Harvey is an Auckland-based performance artist who sits both comfortably and uncomfortably between the genres of visual arts and contemporary dance.
