dc.description.abstractThe understanding of care: caregiving and receiving is fundamental in the way in which we function as individuals, families and as communities. Physically, the action of caregiving is both endurance and enduring. Within the relationship to performance art, caregiving is enduring through the body, duration and engages with the audience in experience through action. Within the traditional context of family, the connections established in infancy are then mirrored in adulthood through the mother (as) or primary caregiver. Within this fundamental relationship, the self acts for the other in an exchange that determines the understanding of self and its position in the world. The profound intimate action of caregiving is a performative act that is based on the relationship of artist and audience (Self and Other). The relationship of Self and Other is an ongoing negotiation that is identified through the carer as Self and the care-receiver as Other. In performance practice this is mutually recognised as the performer as Self and the audience as Other. However, these identifiers of Self and Other are exchanged in the caregiving process, as there are two selves that have their own identity, their own needs and wants. The intimate and focused relationship of caring can cause what I refer to as a Dissonance of Self, in which a reciprocal outcome affects both caregiver and receiver due to the duality of caregiving. My performative practice and this thesis incorporate and demonstrate pertinent psychological, moral and ethical philosophy, as well as gender theory that embraces the deeper characteristics of the relationship to the self and other through caregiving and receiving. This thesis and body of work demonstrate the intertwining of self and other, and the relationship of performative practice to caregiving.en_AU
