Sean Kerr: Bruce danced if Victoria sang, and Victoria sang; so Bruce danced
3 September – 9 October 2010
Bruce danced if Victoria sang, and Victoria sang; so Bruce danced covered Sean Kerr’s work through the period 2000-2010. It recognised the instability of media art, looking back to recreate previous works, exploiting the juxtaposition of past and present to illustrate potential trajectories between works. Whether delivered live in the mode of performance, completed by the active role of the viewer, upgraded to evade redundant technology, or the simple practicality of reconfiguring an installation for a new site, Kerr’s work refuses to be fixed in time through the process of a conventional retrospective.
