More Information

In a new site-specific live performance, Helen Benigson AKA Princess Bellsize Dollar explores ideas of weight, body and sculpture as five female weightlifters lift weights alongside the large-scale sculptures of YSP’s loan collection.

Each performer is accompanied by a specially designed soundtrack featuring recordings from weightlifting classes, and by the amplified sounds of their own physical exertion. Within the public context of YSP, the performers take on a sculptural presence as visitors watch them at all angles in a theatrical spectacle both fictional and absurd.
