TATE museum :Turner Prize 2014-Tris Vonna-Michell
As mentioned in the posting earlier, the theme of group project in this grade is autoethnography.
English artist named Tris Vonna-Michell (28) gained huge fame with audio-tape performance in the artist show called ‘The Generational’ held by New Museum in 2009. Here, his work slowly started with the story by Tris Vonna-Michelle with the performance with voice recorded in the field and gradually caught up with speed until it was changed into the music of coloratured stream in the repetitive flow of climax and chorus.
His work was totally based on autoethnography.
Temporal elements of his current life as well as his own feeling on the world were all reflected on the photo. Furthermore, showing them in slides was enough to make audience feel how it was a documentary film, and his clumsy, stuttering, fast, and also slow voice of his well-represented his current feeling. His voice and the meaning of his words become the biography of observer in the form of diary as a prerequisite. Voice-recording conducted to show his thoughts convey the most direct effect over any of document-based biography.
