"Love Country, Not Borders"

A curious and somewhat unexplained Billy Jo Spears impersonater has come to show the audience in a South London Pub (The Amersham Arms) that Country music can be enjoyed unashamedly if we just surrender wholeheartedly to 'bad-taste' and ignore some of it's complicated nationalistic messages - "Love Country, Not Borders" 

This one-off performance was shown at "TERRA INCOGNITA" - a live performance event set up and hosted by myself and artist Rachel Lonsdale and Kyran Gilbert - 02/08/19.

Unfortunately this performance only exists in memory and partial/fragmented piece of footage (shown here) as camera overheated and shut down during the show. This footage was gathered from the recording taken by audience members. 

Materials:

Large patchwork quilt, cowboy boots, nylon stockings, 2 x fringed and bedazzled Country and Western-style shirts,  fingerless fringed white leather gloves,  hand-painted bedazzled denim corset inscribed with the title"Love Country, Not Borders"
