Chris Dugrenier: Wealth's last caprice
She is an associate artist for Stan's Cafe theatre and deviser/performer for 30 Bird. Her practice has developed towards interdisciplinary performances/ installations/ art projects resulting from redencies, commissions and collaborations. Starting with the autobiographical, with a few exaggerations and little white lies, her projects have been site-specific performance within a tea dance, a collection of video vignettes, a heart-to-heart and could be a sound postcard, a political movement, an impossible public artwork.
THE WORK- A performance where you may hear something to your advantage... 2162 objects totalling 18 years of consumption, compulsion, needs and wants. In this solo performance, Chris envisages a future where she is not present and asks those present to be legal witness to her inventory: the listing of her dreams, ambitions, vanities and wishes... An uplifting celebration of life rather than a momento mori, Wealth's Last Caprice is a sensative, funny and touching reflection on what we value.
'Wealth's Last Caprice is a delightfully simple and resonant...'
'The material is personal enogh to be powerful and yet open enough to provoke personal refletion...'
