Residencies, AND Festival 2012: New Identity Residency / Martin Johnson (2012)
29 August – 01 September 2012
The challenge was to take on a new identity, with a little help from Heath Bunting’s box of legal tricks from his long-running Status Project.
Martin Johnson took up residency at Rogue Studios Project Space and developed a growing interest in the identity of PC Mark Kennedy, an undercover policeman who took control of his presentation of self to an extreme and perverse degree; living as an ‘activist’ called Mark Stone for seven years and conducting a romantic relationship under that guise with a female activist as Stone.
Developed in partnership with Heath Bunting and Rogue Studios Project Space.
