Belfast, Northern Ireland : 1980

Performance/installation at the Art and Research Exchange over the duration of one working day.


Around a room scattered with small, clear plastic bags of water, MacLennan patrols dressed all in white, his face blackened: his mirrored glasses adorned with a white rose; his clothes with raw fish.

‘MacLennan was waiting the whole day among the bags filled with water for “Demarco’s group to arrive from Scotland”.’
