Statement

Untitled 0.1 is a performance inadvertently rendered by an office girl. A role assumed by the artist Fiona MacNeill, and a capacity which she has recurrently fulfilled in reality.
Can a person be held accountable for simply doing their job, even if their job is quite despicable?
Perhaps the blame should be placed squarely upon the shoulders of those higher up in the chain of command. However, in this world of multi-conglomerations, corporations and globalization, couldn't we always shift the blame higher?
Shareholders, benefactors, leaders; those who have attained a kind of corporeal omnipotence, are they accountable? Or, are we all part of a vast mechanism, playing our individual roles and continuing to operate? At what point does the individual become a cog, and identity a distant memory?
Untitled 0.1 is the first live performance presented by the Two-Artists in the United States. Written & conceived by Fiona MacNeill with developmental and technical support from Tucker MacNeill. Please come along to our 'stateside' litmus test and let us know what you think.
