Supermarine – a performance undertaken in private

Supermarine saw Bred Pudding Collective founding member, artist Russ Ralph, making an Airfix model of a Supermarine Spitfire. Bred Pudding Collective tell us this was a performance art piece undertaken in private and documented. It explores the notion of what performance is and might be.

After the Airfix plastic model of the Spitfire he continued by making first a Messerschmitt bf 109 and then another Supermarine Spitfire, a much bigger cardboard model.

Russ made several videos with fellow Bred Pudding Collective (BPC) founding member, Little Onion (Paul Conneally) and audio pieces documenting Supermarine as it progressed.

Although the construction elements of ‘Supermarine’ are complete it continues as podcast type audio series and will be a strand of BPC’s work going forward.
