Artist Talk: Campbell Patterson

Preferring to work alone and with real situations, Campbell Patterson creates video performances that combine wry humour with an element of suppressed eroticism that is both alluring and disarming. Much of his work is characterised by an interest in documenting the mental and physical limitations of the body, manifesting in playful, sometimes painful, and often mischievous results. During the opening weekend of the 6th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Patterson discussed the development of his practice and the direct and indirect references to the history of performance art.
