Undy, Claire [Artist] (2016) Shoes. (7 min.). ed. 3.


Claire Undy (Postgraduate Diploma Fine Art, Royal Academy Schools) makes work in various forms that is based on the recording and documentation of performance. This might be video, posters, postcards or flipbooks. Undy’s performances are distinctively dramatic, and might be absurd, poignant and / or futile. This sense of pathos is deployed to make art about art, questioning notions of authorship, meaning and methodology: “I love the idea that an artist has some sort of mystical power - the ability to turn an ordinary action or object into ‘art' at their command! However, I’m also suspicious of this power”. Undy’s aesthetic is stripped back despite being complex and multi-layered both in process and intention.
