Women’s March Part 2

In this blog is documentation the LoT-D Girls created of their performance at the Women’s Day March that took place this January – to see the film of this and more writing around that experience first, click here. 

This day, started a theme of thinking about documentation and the role that could play, and how the LoT-D girls could take ownership of this themselves – creating lasting images of a powerful protest art action.

First, photographs of the journey there – utilising this as a tool for the girls to see visual elements of what they potentially planned to perform once we arrived:

The next photographs are from performances once we got there, where one of the LoT-D Girls were tasked with documenting, whilst the two others performed – keeping a distance, and merging into the crowd that was gathered around in order to not to be intrusive to the performance

Here we tried out the performance in a much less crowded space, sadly our camera did not record this one! But it was interesting to experiment with a different site.

I think the images in themselves, are very strong, capturing an exciting moment, as one of the LoT-D Girls first public performances.
