An animated film commissioned and screened by Art Review Magazine on their website (Oct-Dec 2010), and a double page comic strip (Art Review, Oct 2010. The project addresses a key problem with contemporary debates regarding ideas of ‘performativity’ and ‘fictioning’ (Foucault/Deleuze/Butler) whereby the structural requirement for an ‘End’ pre-determines or back-codes the ‘story’ or progression of events leading up to this ‘End’ and therefore cuts against the potentials claimed for ‘performance’ and ‘performativity’. Film credits Primary soundtrack: Music: Rose Kallal. Spoken word: Mark Beasley Voices: Katie Barrington, Marnie Watts, Maria Deegan & John Russell Sound engineer: Bob Geal PLUS Special bonus track: (after 'The End'): 'Strychnine Motive' (2011) by Gum Takes Tooth
