Performances and presentations by former East End Collaborations Platform artists:

Oreet Ashery (EEC 2000) – Back in 5 Minutes
A two channel video installation that’s like a mini thriller about the art object versus a performative act and power relations between artists and curators. www.oreetashery.net

Richard DeDomenici (EEC 2002) – Plagiarismo! Redux
A preview of Richard’s new show in which he cites a rich and eclectic variety of case studies from the music, entertainment and art worlds, including his own disputes with News
International and the BBC. www.plagiarismo.com

Angela Bartram (EEC 2003) – Untitled
An illustrated talk on the mouth as a 'vulnerable orifice' and the abject that arises from our unregulated proximity to others, the influence of corporeal and spatial site and how this affects the viewing contract. www.angelabartram.com

Sheila Ghelani (EEC 2005) – 5 Years In The Life Of A Piece (Grafting and Budding...still)
A short film about how a piece of work you quietly make can end up being performed and refined FOREVER (well, for 5 years at least.. maybe longer...lets see shall we...)

Ben Connors & Holly Darton (EEC 2003) – A couple should sit next to each other facing the world
With selected elements from their past work on ideas of division, attachment and competition, this performance installation marks, and reflects upon, Ben and Holly’s working processes and performances. www.benandholly.co.uk

Susannah Hewlett (EEC 2005) – An audio work, Proud to be Presenting
Susannah continues her subversion of emblematic moments from our cultural and social realms to create a new EEC-themed audio work. www.susannahhewlett.com
