Performance Workshop

March 15, 2016

I recently took part in a Performance Workshop through Crawford College of Art and Design, which was an amazing experience. What is performance art you might ask ? Performance art is art in which the artist uses their body as the medium, performing actions which become the artwork.

Usually performance art is performed for a live audience, but performance art can be a medium for image-making, mark-making, and sculpture. Here are a few of my favourite performance artists:

Bas Jan Ader – I’m Too Sad ToTell you (1971) Video
Ulay and Abramovic – Impoderabilia (1977) Image-making and video
Janine Antoni – Loving Care (1992) Mark-Making, Video
