Stage Three: Sculptural Performance Documentary

My research stems from the desire to participate in performance arts, while creating an appropriate way to document the work. By definition, performance art is a time-based art form that typically features a live presentation to an audience or to onlookers (as on a street) and draws on such arts as acting, poetry, music, dance, and painting. Performance art cannot live without the artist, but I am exploring ways that incorporate sculpture and video, so that the artifacts can be solitary. Typically, artists do not document their performances because they do not believe it translates well. The genuine emotions during a performance cannot be recreated by the use of a video. For this reason, Allan Kaprow, a famous performance artist, said, “[Performance art] cannot be sold and taken home; they can only be supported.” I agree with this statement; however, I like to think of my process in three stages.

The first stage is Fluxus-Style Planning, the second stage is The Performance, and the third stage includes a video recording of the performance projected onto a sculpture that is associated with stages one and two. I call stage three Sculptural Performance Documentary. Stages one and two are commonly practiced, but I wanted an artwork that can live without the artist.

My influences are performance artists Allan Kaprow and Marina Abramovic. Allan Kaprow is known for his Happenings in the Fluxus Art Movement. Marina Abramovic is known for exploring the relationship between performer and audience, the limits of the body, and the possibilities of the mind. After combining all of these ideas, I am eager to continue researching Sculptural Performance Documentaries.
