Rodney Graham Interview in The Quietus
21 October 2018Confessions Of A Window Cleaner: Rodney Graham Interviewed
Rodney Graham's current show Central Questions of Philosophy at Lisson Gallery, London, finds the Canadian artist inhabiting a variety of characters, both on and off the canvas. Allan Gardner joins him to talk post-punk, studio practice, and conceptualism. The exhibition (open until November third) explores the nature of the artist as a creator, performer and as a sort of culture-sponge. An envoy for ephemeral ideas, artefacts or symbols that filter down through communication – eventually becoming ubiquitous in our language and collective imaginations.
