PRESS Wil Murray featured by Paul Carey Kent

21 December 2017  |  Latest News

“Murray combines the locations in Alberta and Saskatchewan at which his family’s circus toured in 1933-43 with the prairie sites on which Japanese balloon bombs fell in 1944-5, in photographs layered behind his personal signifier of exaggerated brushmarks (‘The Onlyes Power Is No Power’, to 2 Jan). I suspect the casual passer-by won’t spot the role of Hoffman’s Novelty Circus, but yes – it’s all a circus in Bermondsey.” Wil Murray featured in Paul Carey Kent’s Bermondsey round up.

“I like the warmth of an overhead projector, which has an image that is very alive and immediate. Once a drop of paint falls onto the acetone you instantly have a huge moving painting projected on the wall, overlapping the architecture. It reminds me of anagogic photography; a simple and yet magical moment to observe. In my performances, I want the public to have as much fun as I do.

A friend of mine once commented that the annoying thing with performance is that performers generally seem to have more fun performing than the audience taking it in. I therefore conceive my performances to be open, colourful and pop. I like to create a meditative moment, a safe place, letting images of space and the cosmos filter in.

The musicians I work with, such as Buvette or Bermudaa, compose live, creating a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. I am drawn to musicians who experiment with sounds in the same way that I am composing immersive collages.

For me, the job of the artist is to figure out what art can do for our society, our people and our dreams. If a person visits my show and leaves feeling encouraged to start something of their own, becoming aware of the preciousness of being creative (egoistically as well as collectively), then I’ve succeeded in what I set out to do.”
