From 28th-30th July, 2011 I’m with you took over UK artist Kane Cunningham’s Cliffside “House” in Scarborough, North Yorkshire. Our group of artists responded to the space in a series of performances-for-documentation. The resulting performances-for-documentation were composed of bathtub conversations, embroidered text, improvised type-writing, forensic evidence and scatological fiction. They also subtly recorded the precarity inscribed in this site, from the literal and conceptual precarity Cunningham emphasises in his own discourse around his project, to the interpersonal tensions, conflicts and failures of understanding that often place community-based artworks on the edge.
This book, designed by Vanessa O’Reilly and Emma Leslie, is a tangible product of the interactions from that residency, made possible the generous support of I’m with you audiences. Your purchase offers a glimpse into our weekend, the work, and supports future residencies.
Artists participating in IWY Scarborough included project organizers Christa Holka, Johanna Linsley and R. Justin Hunt, and artists Eirini Kartsaki, Liz Rosenfeld, Jan Mertens, Owen Glyndwyr Parry, Season Butler and Sophie Robinson. The resulting publication was designed by Vanessa O’Reilly and Emma Leslie.
