0 (Zero)

The framework of 0 (Zero) is based on a relay race. In this race, however, only one team takes part, rendering a competitive sport entirely non-competitive. a team of three physically fit, able-bodied men, wearing smart business attire, run 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.

0 (zero) is a temporary, durational piece, commissioned by DASh and LADA and took place as part of the M21 performance event in the heart of Much Wenlock. M21 was commissioned by Unlimited, as part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
