Text über den Künstler
For more than 25 years Skip Arnold has maintained a transgresssive practice of performance, film and installation art.
His work finds its foundations in the historical canons of performance that address and dissect the body politic – confronting the body as politicized, enculturated, but also addressing the body through the lens of humanitarian and ontological inquiries pertaining to strength, endurance, existence, and presence.
Skip Arnold is uncompromising in his work – he does not follow current trends, nor does he get stuck doing the same performances over and over. While he retains certain themes or courses of inquiry (the body, narcissism, the cinematic, dissection of a cultural / or social existence), his work has evolved considerably, especially with his recent sojourn in France.
