How to explain performance art to my teenage daughter.
2018, 05:57 minutes, colour, English text, no dialogue
Mother and daughter embrace the difficult intricacies of explaining art to each other through an intimate action. This is intercut with a straightforward description of Joseph Beuys’ well- known 1965 performance, How to explain pictures to a dead hare. Absurdity and tenderness merge to reveal understanding as a sensory activity.
How to explain performance art to my teenage daughter was originally a performance (2015) that was later remade as a video and photo series.
