Marvin Gaye Chetwynd: Cocaine and Caviar
BERGEN ASSEMBLY 2016
MARVIN GAYE CHETWYND: COCAINE AND CAVIAR
Opening hours: Thu–Sun 11am–5pm
While Chetwynd’s performances are often gregarious and improvisatory affairs involving large gangs of participants, this exhibition looks back at the elaborate, gloriously wonky homemade costumes, props, films and cast-away materials that provide the support structure. As these items end up in museums, the artist uniquely responds to the question of collecting and ‘re-inflating’ performance – Chetwynd’s term for re-enacting and recreating her work – in a series of videos.
