Solo Residency: Kicking the Bucket

Sarah Rudledge

23 Sep–10 Oct 2020

Kicking the Bucket is a daily ritual of kicking and repairing a plastic bucket that began in my backyard during the early stages of COVID-19 lockdowns. Initially based on feelings of hopelessness, the work explores tactics for a repeated movement; a heartfelt kick followed by a gentle repair, to sustain some enthusiasm and care for life during this time.

By mediating this arguable pointless gesture through text, sound and video an approximate, possibly unreliable, process of archiving the day’s action is attempted.
