The new issue of Sluice magazine is out now, available to buy online and from selected bad (ass) retailers, with my girthy, uncut column in it. Pics available. This time I’ve written about the performance of “being an artist,” a theme that follows through in the rest of the magazine.
“Every successful artist is sort of in cosplay or drag as themselves anyway, because of the need for a real artist (as opposed to a dabbler or an amateur) to share and be open; not just to face inward even though I think most artists are fundamentally introverted and contemplative. I’m an introspective, anti-social performance artist whose work is all about talking to people, which is just ridiculous. Am I an artist who dreamed they were an artist statement, or an artist statement who dreamed they were an artist?”
