The Stuart Brisley Interviews: The Art Of Performance And Its After- Lives
|Stuart Brisley ; Gilane Tawadros
This publication presents a series of interviews on the practice of Stuart Brisley (1933), held by curator and writer Gilane Tawadros and directed by the artist. In talking about his practice, Brisley demonstrates a tireless resistance to controlling the narrative or fixing the meaning of his works, while also emphasising the critical importance of error to the creation of his performances. Clearly, the enduring fascination of Brisley’s oeuvre, which over the years has included performance art, sculpture, and installation art, lies in its formless and slippery characteristics that resonate so poignantly with our shared human condition. “Errors make for where the key value lies”.
