relational aesthetics III – Vanessa Beecroft

Vanessa Beecroft works in the gap between art and life. The work is neither performance nor documentary, but something in between. Her live events are recorded through photography and film, but her conceptual approach is actually closer to painting. http://www.vanessabeecroft.com/

relational aesthetics II – Liam Gillick

  His art is underpinned by rigorous theorising: he is as much a writer as a maker of objects. However, Gillick’s work is shaped by a very visual awareness of the way different properties of materials, structures and colour can affect our surroundings and therefore influence the way we behave. http://www.airdeparis.com/artists.htm  http://www.tate.org.uk/britain/exhibitions/gillick.htm  http://www.corvi-mora.com/liamgillick.php
