Trengove’s infamous 1977 performance, an eight day Passage, where he was buried in a small cell under the Acme Gallery and had to dig his way out, still has legendary status as an epic endurance work. He died in 1991; the following year there was a retrospective of his work held at Chisenhale Gallery.
