Tell Me When I Can Stop is a durational performance in which the artist expresses her lived experience of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. The work speaks to the isolation experienced by many sufferers as a result of their need to follow compulsions. This time-based performance reflects the process of becoming lost in, disillusioned and controlled by these compulsive behaviours. The artist will perform for 3 hours each day of the exhibition, creating a continuous, expanding line drawing within a ‘cell-like’ performance space. The segregation of the artist and surveillance-style filming of the her in the space speaks to the marginalised, clinical and impersonal climate that currently overshadows mental health treatment
