“The matter with human beans," the BFG went on, "is that they is absolutely refusing to believe in anything unless they is actually seeing it right in front of their own schnozzles.”

Standing Block brought together ten performance artists shifting the space of a disused mechanics workshop into inhabited dialogues. The presenting artists conversed at intersections of social and linguistic structures, transferred presence and latent physicality. The evening of performance was organised by Lincoln Projects, a company set up by artist JJ Lincoln in order to activate void spaces and provide temporary platforms for artistic expression.
