Giles Bailey Artist Talk
We are pleased to be inviting Giles Bailey to g39 to give a talk about his practice. Giles has a practice that originates in performance but that generates a broad range of exhibition material from sculpture, objects, film, texts and archival material.
“Working largely with performance I try to rethink conventional approaches to assembling and recounting history. Working with texts, video fragments and choreographies, either composed myself or strategically plundered from elsewhere, these works propose a historiographic model that acknowledges doubt, subjectivity and reduction as inevitable factors when making sense of past events.”
Giles Bailey has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally including solo exhibitions at Kunsthalle Basel, The Hepworth (Wakefield), and Transmission Gallery (Glasgow). He lives and works in London and teaches fine art at Newcastle University.
