Paradox of Stillness, the: Art, Object, and Performance

In stock (1000 items available)
Presenting works from the early 20th century to today, this title examines the notion of stillness as both a performative and visual gesture, featuring practitioners who have constructed static or near-static experiments that hover somewhere between action and representation as they are experienced in the gallery space. The exhibition investigates performance from the perspective of the object rather than the body, examining how performance has reinterpreted traditional artistic mediums.
