A live performance installation created by Phil Breadney, as part of Cells - A Body of Work (#CABOW).
I can’t break out, somebody put me in with snakes and spiders. I was an evil and vicious queen. A nasty witch which turned people into dust in the pitch black. I’m a caged, set away from the world. They are protected… I am protected.Caged Queen
Caged queen is evil because in the outside world there was no trust, dignity or respect.
Caged Queen premiered at Manchester Art Gallery in 2017 before further development of the #CABOW project led to performances at Tate Exchange, Tate Liverpool and Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester in November 2018.
