Rebecca Lennon combines text, video, sound and performance with technical and hand made props. Disjointed non-linear narratives, instructional texts and performative actions draw the language of cinema, conspiracy, advertising, ritual and the artists own personal narrative into a confused dialogue.
In previous works she has crossed the phone lines of banks and debt collection agencies (in a homage to Angus Fairhurst), sent a debt collection agency a painting (of the letter they sent to her) as an offering for her debt, spray painted discarded objects in the street in a repetitive ritual and choreographed the bubble wrapping of a tree to various cinematic soundtracks.
