Polly Brown & Philippe Karrer: Performances, The Finality Of Fixing Something By Giving It A Name

Publisher Spheres Projects


Idea Code 19630

This collaboration between photographer Polly Brown and graphic designer Philippe Karrer documents a series of "performances", interventions, and observations that took place in a number of commercial and public galleries in London throughout the summer of 2017. Using the contemporary art gallery as a stage for a series of irreverent disruptions claimed as performances, Brown and Karrer subtly point at and play with the functioning motifs of gallery infrastructure – Endless Helvetica wayfinding signage, blinking overhead CCTV, a discarded press release, unclipped velvet rope partitions, the bored invigilator, and the ubiquitous imposing gallery "welcome" desk.
