Impious: Mark Halliday & Anna Hayes

 

3 & 4 August 2013 

 

Impious (meaning disrespectful of god) was a collaboration between artists Mark Halliday and Anna Hayes.

It was centred in a performance by the artists at Cilyrynys. The artists engaged in a ritualistic meal. Referencing works by the painter William Orchardson and the films of Tony Richardson. The work sets up a combative public ‘eat off’ between the artists.  

A Bacchanal event which was opened by a cow called Rosie and presided over by a fine Bazadaise bull called Farenheit.

 

It is currently the subject of a piece of reflective writing by Mark Halliday.
