A Last Bit of Loving Care was shown at Remarkable Place at The Keep in Reading on 24th and 25th March, and at The Remarkable Shed Party on Sunday 15th July 2012. It is a film by Ingrid Jensen and Steve Perfect saying goodbye to the old Saint Martins building. Ingrid writes: The idea was to perform a short meditative act of cleaning/polishing on a token part of the building structure (eg banister, window, floor, door), with the act being filmed/photographed. It is related to the idea of "last offices" or laying out following a bereavement, and is a way of formalising the "saying goodbye" process. If I were to look for origins they might be in a childhood of having to move house every year or two.
