Amy Kingsmill - Bleeding Skirt

  • Turf projects Keeley Road Croydon, England, CR0 United Kingdom (map)

A woman walks alone in a red skirt, each step is marked by a blood trail left behind her, painting a bloody path which encircles the space. Through the trajectory, a boundary of blood is created around the gallery building.

Amy Kingsmill presents Bleeding Skirt, her new durational piece, a meditation on bleeding women and bleeding as a woman. This ritualistic performance is both deceptively simple and radically ambitious- exploring concerns around public space as a contested space for women to exist in safely. 

About Amy Kingsmill

Amy Kingsmill is a London-based performance artist producing both pain-based ritualistic performance and strongly visual works which present costume as an installation on the body. She creates her own mythology through performance, drawing upon her own internal cast of characters or using performance to push her body through self-designed rituals exploring femininity, pain and fetishisation. Since graduating from Central Saint Martin's she has performed globally including at the first Karachi Biennale, Spill Festival of Performance, Franko B's Untouchables, and presented a collaborative work, Tender Blood, with Sheree Rose.
