This particular series titled Performing Colour examines the spatialization of time, body memory and colour theory. The temporal aspect of this work, performed in real time, as one continuous motion, exposed the various distinctions between conceptual time and real time. Claire Zakiewicz was blindfolded during the process of creation and collaborator Cary Burkowski dictated each colour decision, by assigning specific colored inks, which controlled Zakiewicz's movement and spatial direction on the canvas. Interestingly without sight the artist, repeatedly returned to the point of origin.
