Performance at cattle mart, Limerick.

The image is from a performance that took place in a Limerick cattle mart. The performance involved the artist being auctioned off, as the auctioneer read out a prepared text that referred to the concept of people as commodities. The event was prearranged with the auctioneers and was a total surprise for the farmers at the mart that day. As part of the project, photographs of the performance were printed on page three of various newspapers, which engaged a wider audience to the work, and led to much public discussion in the media regarding the performance.
