Ode To Sisyphus- Tyre Flip.
Durational Performance, Ennis, Co Clare, February 2019
It's about the comfort you can feel through repetitive action, and how we can spend a lot of our time each day performing 'useless' actions over and over again. I was inspired by Sisyphus, who was compelled to spend eternity in Hades, pushing a boulder up a hill, only to have it roll down again so he would have to push it up again, and again, and again. I used a 100kg tyre instead of a boulder, and kept repeating the action until I had to stop to rest, at which point the performance ended.
