Tim Bromage [UK]
Part of an experimental body of work exploring notions of grief, penance
and the use of magic as symbolic demonstration. Contrasting genuine
physicality with elements of deception, the performance makes reference to
biblical verse and personal experience.

SAT. 17th March 07
Shaun Caton [UK]
'once removed...' refers to the act of performance as a stylised and symbolic ritual of self imposed displacement, permitting metaphysical contemplation and creative interaction with the immediate environment of the gallery space. The performance is a living synthesis and crystallization of images and themes from earlier works made in the 1980's - 90's that may become recycled and re-examined.
Shaun Caton stopped making performances in 2000 after approximately 15 years of active involvement in the international performance art arena. He has presented some 200 live performances worldwide. This specially created new work for Trace is his first live performance for 7 years.
Ointment is an itinerant collective of artists working in live and interdisciplinary art practices based in West Wales. They will perform a collective work made in situ. The work will respond to the environs of the building and migrate through it over one day, leaving marks and residue.
Julie Andree T [Canada]
"Not Water Proof"
The performance is a slow transformation through a poetical body. For Julie Andree T. practicing art should be a reflection of daily life and the dark ages we are presently in. She tries to reach a place where personal identity is lost. Although this is a utopia, it might be the only way to find a common abstract language to understand what we do and who we are.
Anne Bean [UK]
Gustav Uto [Romania]
I remember the Welsh artist Paul Davies, who was the first international participant in the Transylvanian Performance Art Days event I organised in 1991. Paul was looking for traces of eastern Celtic culture in the Carpathian mountains. I ask the public at the CAT show to participate in my action by bringing Bottle Caps as formal symbols for a vital (survival) energy content of interregional level cultures.
Julian Blaine [France]
Now I don't move, I speak with my eye, my mouth, my tongue, my throat, my palate, my larynx, cage. I read, I say, I speak and so on....
Clemente Padin [Uruguay]
"Just Do It...!"
Denounce the criminal abuse of the big transnational corporations like McDonald, Texaco, Esso, Microsoft, Nike, etc. An exposition of exploitation and the abuse of workers in Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia etc...
The Heavy Quartet [UK]
Get down and dirty party time with the freaky deaky heavy jazz soul funk dancin' and mind blowin' wig out from the Cardiff based ensemble. Are you ready to testify?!!
