A Meeting Outside Time

Performance, 1988

Description

A Meeting Outside of Time used the relatively unchanged landscape of Northumberland National Park/Hadrian’s wall as a backdrop, an area of historically disputed territorial ownership. Fifty women took part in this act of walking (a traditional way of expressing the right to access) and meeting in a comparatively neutral space.
