Fictional CV of the alter ego Cry_bby__ . Used for the collective performance "En Route" (2019).

En Route was a collaborative travelling performance. The artists played with the idea of creating alter egos and fake CVs as a critique of the artist’s institutionalization. The performance was scheduled and took place in four different locations around London: The Wallace Collection, The Photographers Gallery, National Portrait Gallery and Hayward Gallery. We used umbrellas to display our CVs inspired by the Chinese marriage markets in order to comment on how artists need to market themselves to institutions . At the same time, the umbrellas were portable and could easily become a stand for the display of our images.
