Exposition

In Conversation with Ron Athey (2015)

Andrea Pagnes

About this exposition

This recent conversation I have had with Ron Athey, one of the most outstanding ground-breaking performance artists of our times, has been made exclusively for LADA (Live Art Development Agency, UK) on early 2015. The agency, on behalf of its director Lois Keidan, is pleased to make it available for Research Catalogue members and readers. The dialogue includes a discussion around the issues and concerns of contemporary Performance Art as well as an in-depth focus on the work of Ron Athey, past and present. With additional notes by Lisa Newman, a photo selection from the archive of the artist and Manuel Vason's, and Athey's "Devine's Funeral" monologue, originated from Jean Genet's novel "Our Lady of the Flowers". Ron Athey is an iconic figure in contemporary art and performance. In his frequently bloody portrayals of life, death, crisis, and fortitude in the time of AIDS, Athey provides insights and calls into question the limits of artistic practice and research. These limits enable Athey to explore key themes including gender, sexuality, radical sex, queer activism, post-punk and industrial culture, tattooing and body modification, ritual, philosophy, literature, creative-automatic writings, spirituality and religion. The first monograph on his work, "Pleading in the Blood", edited by Dominic Johnson, is published by LADA and Intellect Books in their Intellect Live series.
