  • Wintersession – Who is the Artist?
  • During my Wintersession course "Painting Marathon" we were asked to come up with a performance piece. I modelled my concept after Yves Klein's infamous Anthropométries, however reversing certain roles and reinterpreting painting and artmaking in the age of duplication, the internet, automatisation and identity struggles. My question to the viewer, Who is the Artist, is quite literal: if I tell my assistant to insist that I am indeed the artist, yet all I am used for is as a paintbrush, where does the "art" happen?
