Circumbendibus Vol. 1 & 2

Live performance, 25 min, 2022

Performed at Open Studios, Royal Academy of Arts, London, November 2022

and at within Guendalina Cerruti's exhibition Ohh... Youth!, V.O Curations, London, November 2022.

Circumbendibus chronicles the killing off and eventual resurrection of a former alter ego, and elaborated on criticism she received and the artist's own frustration with the narcissistic character. Working from a script for the first time, Blum embodied a range of voices and roles using monologue and song. She also laments a period of renovations she underwent at her flat, and of the unfortunate encounters with ‘the BOYS’, thinking through gender stereotypes, heteronormative queerness, false binaries, and dust.

Dust which settles on literally every surface, ends up in every god damn crack, in my hair, in her lungs, all over the house, FOR EVER AND ALL ETERNITY. 

A mixtape containing live recordings of the tracks written for ‘Circumbendibus’ was released in early 2023.

The annotated performance script was published as an A5 publication, edition of 50. Email to purchase one (£25).
