For the third theme in JHG Footprints, Artist and the Body/Performance, we have chosen to look back at ‘Live Art on Camera’ (2007), an exhibition curated by Alice Maude-Roxby. . ‘Live Art on Camera’ (both the exhibition and the accompanying publication) brought together many iconic photographic records of some landmark 20th Century performance works. Cleverly, this exhibition chose not to centralise the popularly known images alone, but to instead focus on the intimate, working relationships between the performer and the photographer, who between them produced those seminal images. The performances themselves, the individual artistic practices, and the resulting photographic documents were unpicked and re-evaluated through the framework of partnerships and pairings, highlighting the process and driving force which generated much of the performance history we recognise today. . An interview between Alice Maude-Roxby and our previous Director, Professor Stephen Foster, can be found on our YouTube channel within the archive playlist. . . #johnhansardgallery #jhg #southampton #highfieldcampus #universityofsouthampton #contemporaryart #art #photography #performance #archive #artists #exhibitions #history #camera #liveartoncamera @artsunisouth @uni_southampton @aceagrams

My name is Louise and I work as a Gallery Assistant. Those of you who know me will know how much I love a good hat, you can always find me wearing one of my collection whilst working in the gallery. . Now I can go out again, I have been looking for artworks I can visit. It is inspiring to see how many public sculptures I have found close to my home. . 1. 'The Romsey Rose' by Simon Cooper and Matthew Duke, outside Waitrose in Romsey. I am wearing my floppy brown summer hat. . 2. 'Eternal Knot' by Tim Ward. This is beautiful in its simplicity. . 3-4. Details of the plinth of ‘Eternal Knot’. The artist engaged with local residents and school children to create these images. . . #JHGfromhome #jhg #jhggalleryassistants #supportsotonarts #sculpture #publicsculpture #TimWard #Romsey #Waitrose #Hampshire
