John G. Boehme
performance 15.00 - 18.30
Saturday 5th May 2001
6th - 21th May 2001
Boehmes durational work continues his fascination and investigation
of men and their leisure pursuits. Over a period of three and a
half hours the artist drives 600 golf balls into an aluminium clad
wall of the gallery.
Boehmes work is a co-mingling of conceptual considerations
with pure aestheticism.
The viewer is drawn to the visual seductiveness of the piece and
through this sustained interaction the conceptual aspects are revealed.
This disclosure is often a simple statement of fact or of humour
which presents itself without anger or defensiveness.
Boehme gained his inter-media degree at Emily Carr Institute of
Art, Vancouver and has recently been awarded an MA at the University
of Victoria BC. He has produced installation exhibitions throughout
Canada & the USA and has recently been awarded residencies at
Banff, Canada and CAMAC, France. He also curates performance art
events in Victoria and Vancouver and represents an emerging generation
of performance artists from the north west Pacific rim.
John Boehmes work at trace has been supported by The Canada
Council for the Arts.
