Film Stills from a performance video created with Ralph Kuehne, 2016
We are currently working on a video performance short film based on a sequence of performances I created with Ralph Kuehne in the Reussdelta while I was in residency in Lucerne, Switzerland. The performances are dialogic to the poetry I have been developing in recent performances. In addition to drawing from auto biographical material that I have interwoven in the work. Part of which references the food allergies I have suffered with all my life. The raw footage is poetic and sensual and we can envisage the material being exhibited on diptych screens.

Performance stills from performances with Danielle Ehemann, 2012 to 2014
Danielle Ehemann and Carron Little met in 2012 while working on an exhibition called Public VS Private at 6018North curated by Tricia Van Eck. Danielle is an artist based in Berlin and as in all wonderful friendships it started over afternoon tea in Carron’s kitchen in Chicago. We chatted for hours and this conversation has become an extended conversation over the past three years exploring the relationship of Berlin and Chicago. Our launching point has been embedded in the architectural relationship of these two cities. We have questioned modernist design principles and the ghettoization of communities through performance. We continue to discuss these topics trans-globally developing ideas for new pieces. In 2015 we generated a series of proposals that are currently on the table if you are interested in discussing this with us please reach out to us. Carron has had first hand experience growing up in a ghetto in Glasgow referred to as the worst housing estate in Europe. Her family spent 3years in Easterhouse when she was between the ages of 2yrs old and 5yrs old but this formative experience has impacted her art making and her lifelong commitment to social justice.
