The Artist as Athlete

Introducing Run Vertical (Running up the Side of a Building)

Abstract

Focusing on a practice-based approach – thinking about the relationships between drawing, performance and running, this paper is derived from a presentation aimed to introduce the artwork RUN VERTICAL (Running up the Side of a Building), an Arts Council England funded project.


Pointing to an increasing awareness of interconnected practices, necessity of collaboration and institutional critique, I highlight key aspects of my practice; and artworks by artists such as, Carolee Schneemann, Martin Creed and Trisha Brown help to inform an understanding of the ‘line’ and ‘body’.
