0

0 (zero) is a temporary, durational piece that took place as part of the M21 performance event in the heart of Much Wenlock. The framework of 0 is based on a relay race; In this race, however, only one team took part, rendering a competitive sport entirely non-competitive; the team of 3 physically fit, able bodied men, wearing smart business attire, ran the race using the artist's disabled, female body, dressed in sports gear, as a human baton, passing it between each other after completion of each lap.
