On October 20th, 2012, Marty St James, a famous British performance video artist, will come to Redtory with an exhibition—Marty St James at the Redtory, which is the second time in China after he presented his new works in Beijing Redtory, in June, 2012.This exhibition is organized by Redtory Culture & Art Organization and Consulate General of British in Guangzhou#GREAT BRITAIN#

The notion of action performance underpins Marty St James’ practice as a whole and each element he creates, irrespective of the medium, is essentially an exploration of to what it is to be, in space and time. The video, digital print and drawing works brought together for this exhibition are a reflection of the breath of the artist’s response to the notion.

These responses accord to themes: walking across a field, being in Antarctica, thinking, bearing reverence to Picasso’s Blue Period, negotiating the very private ‘space’ beneath his hat. The drawings he makes in relation to existence within these respective realms are in themselves a form of action, an energised performance.  Starkly, they also bear witness to the physical act of creating, to the engagement of the body with the material crafting of an art object, another testimony to corporeal existence: I was here; I made this. Since the mid 1970s, his visionary application of technology has pioneered new approaches to artists’ video practice and seen his works included in major national collections such as the National Portrait Gallery, London and the British Film Institute. He has exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery, (London); Tate Gallery; Pompidou Centre, (Paris); National Museum of Photography (Tokyo); National Centre for Contemporary Art (Moscow) and Chelsea Art Museum (New York). He has undertaken several international residencies, including most recently in Antarctica in 2010. These works were previously shown at UH Galleries, University of Hertfordshire, UK where the artist is the Professor of Fine Art.
