Situated somewhere between performance, action, sound, text and occasionally object, Bryony Gillard’s practice draws upon common social forms of interaction, traditional customs and accepted cultural exchanges. By collaborating with artists or individuals from different professions, Gillard questions authorship and explores methods of instigating subtle or non-confrontational forms of participation.
Last Orders is a live work and accompanying static installation.
Gillard has negotiated the loan of the last orders bells from a number of Bristol's finest public houses for the period of the exhibition, replacing each with a musical hand bell, each of a different note. The work explores a process of negotiation, persuasion and collaboration between the artist and the establishments, and attempts to present a live work in a gallery context through related works rather than documentation.
