THE REEF PROJECT started in 2014 when Faithfull intentionally burned and sank a small boat near the coast of Portland, UK. Its sinking and burning were filmed and broadcasted live via the web. The boat was intentionally sunk to the seafloor in order to create an artificial reef. In a few years’ time, the shipwreck will be filmed again to show the metamorphosis it will have undergone. Besides this video-feed live performance, video installations, a self-portrait and a performative lecture constitute the project thus far. >>
