‘After the Performance’ at Tension Fine Art – It’s tempting to contrast object and performance, but a physical object often results from a performance, and the making of an object – be it sculpture, painting, drawings, film etc. – is itself a performance of sorts. ‘After the Performance’ highlights eight artists whose performative practice leads to a result which might be categorised differently, and artists whose production, even if it isn’t categorised as a ‘performance’, carries a strongly performative element. In all these examples, the indirect presence of the performance is a significant contributor to the charge generated by the apparently non-performative result.
Curated by Paul Carey-Kent and Rosie Gibbens
‘After the Performance’ opens on Thursday 7th September 6-9 pm at Tension Fine Art, Penge, 135 Maple Road, London SE20 8LP
