LADY IN RED CRAWLS THROUGH PARLIAMENT SQUARE
Sorry for the randomness of my email but I’m a reporter at the Mail Online trying to find out who the mysterious ‘lady in red’ from Parliament Square this weekend is and my research has led me to you via Ana Mendieta and Vanessa Beecroft, good company!
I was wondering if you’d tell me if it was in fact you and tell me a bit about why you (if it was you) did it?
'I crawled through Parliament Square because it needed some colour...
and when you crawl through a space like that, it plays with the power structures that it normally upholds.
It feels both defiant and submissive to crawl, it hints at promiscuity and madness but also humour and resilience.
But probably most importantly, it allows me to step out of a role that I'm normally assigned to; I get to be a little less human and a little more animal-like.'
