About

Flashes From the Archives of Oblivion' brings together four pioneers of the performance genre with established practices that date back to the 1960s. The exhibition will explore elements of each artist's practice in relation to the discourse that surrounds the documentation of performance art.

Stuart Brisley has often been referred to as the 'Godfather' of British performance art. A gifted painter, he will be exhibiting a series of contemplative paintings that reflect his politically charged performance work and have, until now, been largely confined to his studio.

An extensive archive of photographs, drawings, self-designed posters, flyers and general ephemera constitutes Ian Hinchliffe's 'Estate' project. A mass of work collected by the artist since the 1960s gives a grand overview of an ever-changing working-class cultural aesthetic firmly rooted in the radicalism of the British avant-garde and British music hall traditions.

Alastair MacLennan will present hundreds of original 35mm slides of performance work collected since the 1970s. The slides are exhibited on light boxes creating both a contemplative installation and a place for study.

Tatsumi Orimoto has produced Fluxus-inspired performance actions since the 1960s and is one of Japan's most famous living performance artist. For the past decade he has documented lens-based actions made with his mother who suffers from Alzheimer's and her friends in her tiny house in Kawasaki City.
