Bounce is a one day performance/installation that explores the relationship between pleasure, danger and the uncanny. Over a seven-hour period the audience are invited to engage/interact with a large inflatable children’s play structure. The leisurely ambience of the work is recast however by the unforeseen presence of the artist. Two small eyeholes on the top of the structure reveal a body inside watching the audience from within. The relational enjoyment of the work is recast by this uncanny moment of uncertainty when play is interrupted by a fragmentary live presence. Bounce is a performance/installation that renegotiates the artist/audience relationship mixing conviviality and recreation with violence and phobia. It navigates a space between the real and fantasy linking the visceral transgression of body art with languages of everyday gratification.
