Daniel Buren

Daniel Buren (born 1938) works and lives in France and is one of the most important conceptual artist of the post-war period. He started his career as a painter and began his famous installations with wall painted stripes and striped material in 1965. The stripes are always 8.7 cm apart and this method has been a consistency in Buren’s work. Voile/Toile Toile/Voile is Buren’s site-specific piece, a Regatta, which was staged at the Wordsworth Trust on Lake Grasmere in July 2005. Buren’s trademark stripes are featured on the sails of a fleet of nine small sailing boats. The boats are raced by children and undertake a series of sailing manoeuvres. This event has previously been staged all over the world, in a variety of environments and scales ranging from Lake Genevato the Red Sea. Following the Regatta Buren’s striped sails in a variety of bright hues are installed in a gallery setting therefore producing a didactic between the performance and the exhibition. In this case they are exquisitely installed in The Old Library Gallery at the Wordsworth Trust. Buren comments on the event* and his recent show at The Guggenheim in New York.

*The event was curated by the artist Daniel Sturgis and supported by Robert Woof and The Wordsworth Trust.

Christo and Jeanne–Claude

Christo and Jeanne-Claude were interviewed at Annely Juda Gallery on the occasion of their exhibition A work in Progress. Their newest project Over the River is discussed in terms of the complexity and planning for their unique art works. Insights are given not only into their working relationship but also into the artistic integrity of their projects and the issues which arise when using rural and public land as well as the time scale involved. The conversation ranges from the rafters who will enjoy the river from below to the drawings and preparatory work that inform the final outcomes of Cristo’s monumental conceptions.

Gustav Metzger

Gustav Metzger was responsible for Auto-Destructive Art launched in 1959 and to the present day his practice is engaged with the political, transformation and process. He discusses his latest exhibition Eichmann and the Angel at Cubitt where his installation encompasses many of his signature concerns. Metzger talks about the physical and psychological presence of his exhibition with its conveyor belt which audiences are asked to lay their newspapers on, Adolf Eichmann’s bullet-proof cage from his trial in 1961 which one can sit in, coupled with cross references to Paul Klee, Hannah Arendt and Walter Benjamin. The conversation traces connections in Metzger’s long artistic career and the way that he connects different metaphors concerning destruction.

Charlie Hooker

Charlie Hooker is interviewed at the Bloomberg SPACE in London after performing STROLL ON (Performance for ‘1979’) which he originally wrote for the Hayward Gallery. In conversation Hooker talks about performance and sound with reference to both his current and past art practice, which he began in the 1970s. His work has always been interdisciplinary, linking music, performance, art and science to construct visual environments. The conversation reflects on the practical issues of making work and his consistent engagement with exploring and extending creative boundaries between disciplines and processes. lt includes extracts from STROLL ON – Live Audio.

Interview by Jean Wainwright at Bloomberg SPACE, London, September 2005

Jeff Wall

Jean Wainwright spoke to Jeff Wall during his major retrospective at Tate Modern. The conversation discusses his iconic works from The Destroyed Room, A Sudden Gust of Wind, Restoration and Morning Cleaning, Mies van der Rohe Foundation Barcelona not only in terms of art and photographic history but also in terms of composition, staging and politics. Wall’s engaging dialogue with notions of authenticity and the cinematic also challenges ‘what it is to make work’ as he traces his photographic and artistic development over the last thirty years.

Tina Keane

Tina Keane is interviewed in her studio talking about her latest commissioned video work for the Sketch space Le Jardin, with its visual references to gardens in particular Monet’s garden and Japanese design. Working across a range of media from performance to installation, film, video and digital art she explains her experimental and dynamic investigations into different media and communities. Keane set up the feminist film collective ‘Circles’ and early works are discussed including Hop Scotch which she made with her daughter. Keane also talks about colour, light and shadows which are important visual narratives in her influential practice which begun in the 1970s.

Interview by Jean Wainwright at the artist’s studio, 2005

Jake and Dinos Chapman

Jake and Dinos Chapman engage in a conversation during the installation of their show Like a Dog Retums to Its Vomit at White Cube Gallery. A lively discussion ensures as to whether work made by two people can ever be ‘personal’. Goya and their intervening in his work is discussed as well as their particular take on the experiences of ‘making art’. Their intellectual and philosophical engagement with their art is evidenced in this interview as is their humour and playfulness with the interviewer.
