Mark Greenwood is a performance artist/ writer originally from Newcastle but now based in Liverpool. He has presented work across the U.K, Europe and the United States as well as curating the RED APE; a performance platform dedicated to the preservation and legacy of provincial performance art practice in the U.K. Utilising indefinite durational practice and minimal actions as art forms, Greenwood’s interests lie in anthropomorphic puzzles and inter-textual folds.

Thanks to all who came to our seventh birthday event on 30th April, which was, in the words, of Judy Gordon, a night of “meltdowns, anthropomorphic puzzles, and other surprises”. Thanks to Judy and Write Out Loud for this review, which you can read in full here.
Lots of examples of Mark’s work are available on his website such as:
IS/THIS/HIS. a collaboration between Alastair MacLennan, Bean and Mark Greenwood. Three figures slowly unravel white wool for three hours. Inscription, testing of material, knots and the generation of trace configures an immediate and sustained public utterance.
Mark will perform at The Other Room 7th birthday, 30th April.
For more details of the night see the poster in the middle column.
