BECOMING AN OBJECT: An evening with Skip Arnold

Writer and academic Dominic Johnson hosts a rare UK appearance by the US (French based) artist Skip Arnold. They will screen a  selection of Skip’s videos and other documents, and discuss the body, duration, intervention, commitment, and documentation. 

Skip Arnold is a significant artist who works primarily in public, durational and/or behavioural actions and “activities”, and has created performances internationally since 1983. He has slammed his body into white walls in order to make a drawing (Marks, 1984); been exhibited in a Lucite display case for two weeks (On Display, 1993); was shipped as freight from city to city (Freight, 1993); became human flotsam risking paranormal death in the Bermuda Triangle (B. T. Exploration, 1996); and was preserved as like a relic beneath glass so as to be walked over to enter an art fair (Gruezi, 2002).
