今年のリースレクチャーの講演者は?

 


ファーガソンの講演は2012年でしたので、今年は誰だろうとサイトに行ってみると、グレイソン・ペリーという英国の芸術家でした。自分は知らなかったので、英国メディアに詳しい小林恭子さんの説明です。

グレイソン・ペリー:1960年生まれ。陶芸家及び女装者として知られ、2003年、ターナー賞を受賞者する。明るい色使いの陶芸作品のテーマは児童虐待やサド・マゾ行為。受賞式には「クレア」という女性の姿で出席した。ペリー氏によれば、クレアはもう1人の自分である。性、サディズム、マゾ、暴力、女装が同氏のテーマで、これに沿ったテレビ番組を制作したり、本も書く。BBCのクイズ番組(10月放送)にもクレアとして登場した。彼の芸術に賛同するかしないかは別としても、表現の限界を一歩進めたのは確か。



2007年に金沢で展覧会我が文明:グレイソン・ペリー展が開かれたようです。


Democracy Has Bad Taste
Grayson Perry: Playing to the Gallery: 2013 Episode 1 of 4
Duration: 42 minutes
First broadcast: Tuesday 15 October 2013
In the first of four lectures, recorded in front of an audience at Tate Modern in London, the artist Grayson Perry reflects on the idea of quality and examines who and what defines what we see and value as art. He argues that there is no empirical way to judge quality in art. Instead the validation of quality rests in the hands of a tightknit group of people at the heart of the art world including curators, dealers, collectors and critics who decide in the end what ends up in galleries and museums. Often the last to have a say are the public.
Perry examines the words and language that have developed around art critique, including what he sees as the growing tendency to over-intellectualise the response to art. He analyses the art market and quotes - with some irony - an insider who says that certain colours sell better than others. He queries whether familiarity makes us like certain artworks more, and encourages the public to learn to appreciate different forms of art through exploration and open-mindedness.
Perry was awarded the Turner Prize in 2003, and is known for his ceramic works, printmaking, drawing, sculpture and tapestry as well as for his cross-dressing and alter-ego, Claire.
The Reith lectures are presented and chaired by Sue Lawley.


リースレクチャーでもクレアとして女装で登場しているようです。冒頭の会話を確認しておきます。以前ブログで紹介したTouché.というイディオムが使われています。

トランスクリプト

SUE LAWLEY: He’s also a well-known cross dresser. As he said when he won that big prize, “it’s about time a transvestite potter won the Turner”. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Grayson Perry.
You have fans, you have fans. I have to say, Grayson, that this must be the first time in the sixty-five year history of Reith that a cross-dresser has been the lecturer.
GRAYSON: Well, as far as we know.
SUE LAWLEY: Touché.
GRAYSON: Look for the eyebrows, I always say.
SUE LAWLEY: Touché. Listen, this is radio. You have to describe what you’re wearing.
GRAYSON: Yes, I’m usually dressed by St Martins Students now so this, this sort of oversized t-shirt in psychedelic colours was made by a student called Angus, a Chinese student actually, and I’m wearing my orange patent flatforms, I think you call them.
