 Lesley Perkes Biography

In one of the only green spaces in inner-city Johannesburg, Lesley Perkes and artist Johannes Dreyer transformed a pile of rat-infested rubble into a bed with plush headboard, creased sheets, crumpled duvet and pillows -- all made from concrete. The Troyeville Bedtime Story is her Neighborhood Target Practice initiatives highest-profile project, and it unfolds in physical and online public space.

Perkess artatwork project builds bridges between artists and the South Africa's corporate and government sectors, but she doesn't seek or ask permission to instigate Target Practice. "Public space belongs to the public," she says. The community (in the district and online) has taken ownership of the bed as an ongoing yet ephemeral legend, a place for mischief and performance, a setting for pajama parties, and the site of a 100-person-(so far)-strong portrait project.
