Press Information
This is Hayley Newman’s first exhibition for Matt’s Gallery and her first London solo show.

For six months, between 1 January and 30 June, Newman collected every daily and Sunday national newspaper. This assortment will provide the source material for a series of newly commissioned performances occcuring at Matt’s Gallery over a consecutive 16-day period.

The newspapers will inform the content of the performances, providing the physical material for props used in the work, and occupying a position within the exhibition space at Matt’s Gallery.

Each day newpapers and magazines report news of national and international importance, translating events from contemporary daily life into image and text. Treating all information equally, Newman proposes to develop work out of the collective stories in individual papers, tracing occurences from their ‘life’ source through to textual report and back into ‘live’ event.

Eating 100 doughnuts in a day - Experiencing what it feels like to lie under 26 stone of earth - Saturating herself with self tanning lotion and gradually becoming more orange until the end of the exhibition period... Throughout the performances Newman’s identity will change as she transforms herself from a cow to David Beckham to Anne Widecome, from aggressor to victim and from Page Three model to chef. Wearing red contact lenses to give her continuous ‘red-eye’, the performances in The Daily Hayley promise to meditate on representation, agency and the absorption of information courtesy of the press.

The performance and publication have made possible with the generous support of Arts Admin, Chelsea College of Art and Design, London Arts, The Arts Council of England and The Henry Moore Foundation
