Performance Art and Comedy from Gutai to the Present

About

Working across range of media Mel Brimfield examines the parallels between classic British comedians and performance artists. For her first solo exhibition in London she presents a fictional archive of information and objects, featuring a host of familiar faces including Morecombe and Wise, Tony Hancock and Peter Sellers in a spoof revaluation of history. Through meticulously drawn and painted ephemera Brimfield reveals collaborations between artists, dancers, theatre makers, filmmakers, political activists and comedians. This collection of paintings, film, and sculpture takes as its primary inspiration the legendary Windmill Theatre, which is widely credited with affecting an important shift in the culture of interdisciplinary performance practice.
