This print is made from an original painting from the Love Lives of the Artists series Mel Brimfield started in 2007. The paintings are a research methodology for large scale performances that re-assess art history through recollections and spurious accounts. The tongue-in-cheek and tragicomic tone challenges our relationship to artistic icons and their mythologies. This is Performance Art: Performed Sculpture and Dance was developed as part of Mel Brimfield's residency at Camden Arts Centre in 2010 and continued as an exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park in 2011.
