LENDABLE MENDABLE VENDABLE was a performance installation and film by artists Sarah Cockings and Harriet Fleuriot.

The project investigated objects we live and work with as peculiar agents of (dis)satisfaction and (un)fulfilment.

Lendable Mendable Vendable provided a restorative adventure gameshow retail park… for things. Unwanted objects were put through a series of physical and virtual transformations using a custom-built, human-controlled machine, performed by Sarah Cockings and Harriet Fleuriot, with live sound design by Luke Fraser.

Systematically analysed, processed and enhanced in front of a live audience, the objects were then returned to their owners.

The processes were amplified for via a network of computers, projectors, screens and a PA system, with generated material played back live within the space and online, alongside pre-produced video.

Installed and performed at Art Night London 2018 and Eindhoven Film Festival 2018.
