The output is a collaborative participatory public performance of Paula Chambers’ Urinary Leash. The piece was performed by six women including Chambers herself. Other performers include: Tanja Ostojić, Mad Kate, Hieu Hanh Hoanh Tran, Jelena Dinić, Lidija Antonović. Research Process: Urinary Leash is a performance work about access to women’s public toilets. The research process included extensive primary research into the accessibility of public toilets across the UK and in Belgrade during the performance project including documentation of all women’s public toilet facilities accessed during the project. Research Insights: As an older woman, Paula Chambers is currently researching how the material culture of femininity is accessed through a range of embodied performance and sculptural strategies, and how these change in relation to the aging female body. Dissemination: this public performance of Chambers’ Urinary Leash took place in Pioneer’s Park, Belgrade as part of a two-day workshop project led by Tanja Ostojić as part of the Mis(s)placed Women? exhibition. The whole Belgrade iteration of the Mis(s)placed Women? project including documentation of Urinary Leash is available in the form of a catalogue which is available in a paper-based format as a book, and as an open access free downloadable document on Academia.edu.
