The performance of fossil fuel extraction is marked by a great indignity. This work, ‘C’, represents, of course, specific practices and events associated with fossil-fuels, but also, more generally, an ugly and unbalanced relationship with the hand that feeds us. The movement holds an air of increasing desperation about it. ‘C’ speaks of a human arrogance; a white man in white dress in a white room irreversibly compromises the purity of himself and his environment.
