“A seamless flow of beautifully crafted, intelligent images”
Christopher Hewitt – Live Art Magazine

In 1996 Robert Pacitti travelled to New York to meet and spend time with author and raconteur, Quentin Crisp, in order to produce a new work taking Crisp’s infamous autobiography The Naked Civil Servant as its starting point. Exploring issues of liberty – and disobedience – Civil includes live performance, film, slides, original sound materials and music. Since Crisp’s death the piece has undeniably shifted, and a work that set out to explore shared aspirations and joint activism now reads as a series of images and ideas placed in relation to notions of legacy.

Civil makes a welcome return following its original performance at mac in 2000.
