Glistening Scum

Glistening Scum is a durational performance involving a tin bath, 7kg of gold glitter and of course a rubber duck.

First performed on 03/03/17 for Vivid’s Black hole club opening night in Birmingham the piece is both playfully ridiculous and disturbing. Inviting visitors to give the artist ‘golden showers’ between hummed lines of south pacific’s ‘I’m gonna wash that man right outta my hair’. There’s a nagging tension between the inherent joy in bath of glitter and the performer gradually entering early stage hypothermia.
