Liz Crow, Reflections from the Bed, 9 mins, 2012. With captioning. Reflections from the Bed draws on audio recordings and timelapse photography from artist-activist Liz Crow’s Bedding Out performance in which Liz took to her bed in a public gallery to highlight the impact of benefits changes introduced by the UK government. Says Liz, “I wear a public self that is energetic, dynamic and happening. I am also ill and spend much of life in bed. The private self is neither beautiful nor grownup, and I conceal it carefully. But the benefits system demands a reversal, my private self paraded to justify support. Through Bedding Out I want to make a twilight existence visible. But more, I want to show that what many people see as contradiction, what they call fraud, is only the complexity of real life.”
