  • Bill Aitchison is a British performance maker who works in and between performance, writing, video and audio. At the center of the work is a sense of the potential of the moment and sense of being part of something unrepeatable. His performances are both rigorously structured and dynamic in their execution. Each are significantly different, though as a whole have a consistent style being open-ended, formally precise and using dry humor. Work in other media extends and adapts these strategies. The work plays upon the dividing lines of the personal and the public, and those between art and everyday life. As well as using theatres and galleries, projects may also be placed in living city spaces or designed for an online platform, creating different levels of intimacy and complicity between the artist and spectator. These performances can be living situations, but so too can they be tightly rehearsed works. Sometime they are both.
