Martin O’Brien - Breathe for Me

Friday 15 February 2013, 14:00 to 18:00 Arnolfini
Free

I am my body but my body is against me. I'm drowning. Breathe for me; will some body breathe for me?

Sometimes survival is an act of physical endurance. Artist Martin O'Brien suffers from cystic fibrosis, a serious and chronic disease where the body produces excess mucus, blocking major organs, including his lungs. Breathe for Me, considers a medicated body which suffers in order to survive.

This is a durational performance. Stay as long as you like.

Martin will journey through central Bristol towards this performance from 1pm, culminating at Arnolfini.
