Doing One Thing At A Time

Doing One Thing at a Time is a performance and installation, occurring and displayed within The 1897 Window Gallery. Over two months Fiz Eustance will spend an hour or more every day within the gallery space (which will be set up as a studio), crocheting. When Fiz is not within the gallery the space will be on display in its studio form, and viewers will be able to watch as the crocheted object gradually evolves.

Fiona’s style uses figurative elements that have a mythical, abstracted feeling, where the figures are carved or etched into the background layers of paint to become part of the landscape. She bases…
