|Stuart Brisley at Mummery + Schnelle 13-17 November 6-8pm|
|Domo Baal is pleased to announce that we are now representing, in collaboration with Mummery + Schnelle, the work of Stuart Brisley.|
Brisley is widely regarded as a key figure of British performance art. In a career now reaching into its sixth decade, he has unflinchingly probed the political, cultural and social mores of his times. From his early projects in 60s post-war Germany to his pioneering archival Peterlee Project 1976-1977, from his recurring engagement with the politics of Northern Ireland to his more recent critique of the British monarchy and systems of power, Brisley's art, wholly international in scope, conveys a profound and singular voice, one that increasingly reaches out in its influence to a younger generation of artists working today.
Brisley is best known for performances that often involved considerable feats of stamina and endurance. But his is a diverse practice that engages with the most traditional of forms, including sculpture, photography and painting, enriching his enduring relationship with the body as subject, tool and instrument.
Later this month the exhibition A Bigger Splash: Painting After Performance opens at Tate Modern. It will feature material related to two important Brisley performances from the 1970s, Artist as Whore enacted at Gallery House in London in 1972, and Moments of Decision/Indecision performed at the Teatra Studio, Warsaw in 1975.
To coincide with the opening of A Bigger Splash and to mark the beginning of our working relationship with Stuart Brisley, Mummery + Schnelle will present a selection of important historical and recent works by him from 13-17 November. This will include painting, drawing and photography, alongside films of two performances from the 1990s, Red, Black and White and Sweating the Hole.
