Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, Residency, 2015.

As part of the run up to New Art West Midlands 2015 at Birmingham Musuem and Art Gallery, I took up a residency where I was working with the cleaners at the gallery to gain information of the job and started a conversation about their role and mine. I learnt the procedures of the musuem cleaning and some health and safety regulations. As part of the residency I gained experience of working alongside some of the cleaning staff on their daily routine. This helped me to learn more about the job and to put forward this knowledge towards my live performance. The photographs shown highlight my role of the musuem cleaner and the works titled 'The Critic' shows the crossovers between The Cleaner and The Artist, with myself criticing my work as the artist who cleans and criticing the artwork surrounding me as a cleaner.
