Time and isolation as performance art: A note
|Title:||Time and isolation as performance art: A note||Authors:||O'Donnell, Ian||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/6271||Date:||Apr-2014||Online since:||2015-01-06T12:40:11Z||Abstract:||In a series of five year-long works the Taiwanese-American artist Tehching Hsieh captured critical aspects of the prisoner’s experience including the meaning of time, the rigours of solitary confinement, the impact of homelessness and the pressures of inescapable company. These were performed in unambiguously stark, and deeply personal, terms. In a way these pieces of art might be considered partial prison parables which point to, but do not explicate, lessons from which anyone deprived of their liberty might learn.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Sage Publications||Journal:||Crime Media Culture||Volume:||10||Issue:||1||Start page:||81||End page:||86||Copyright (published version):||2014 the Authors||Keywords:||Performance art; Prisons; Solitary confinement; Tehching Hsieh; Time||DOI:||10.1177/1741659014528345||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
