Artist Statement

My work has focused on detours and delays and the memorization and rehearsal stages of performance as materials of traction.  My videos are home spun and intimate. I have never been tempted to tell a story but work with images to be read, not looked at.  At the same time I am easily persuaded to make home movies for people as I travel around with my camera.  


I have found that the character of Arlequino from the Commedia del'Arte personifies my aesthetic and the main character in Rehearsal in Cairo 2008 (see acharvey04 youtube) personifies Arlequino.   If there is a more complicated way to achieve something...If there is room for a cartwheel before shaking hands then a cartwheel it is.


My recent interests are all collaborative-  The Transparent Artist is represented by the four years of paper work that it took to get an Iraqi comedian to America,  as an installation.  The transparent artist is a character who is an artist de facto- not because of what he does.


I have currently begun borrowing  work for open collaboration  i.e video footage from a scientific expedition in Antartica.  Leftover paper printouts from a writer's published work. All participants will have equal acknowledgment.


I have often used existing texts, words, as material:  La chanson de Roland (author unknown), Marguerite Yourcenar, Harriet Beecher Stowe, the poetry of Joan Aleshire and more.  


My work has always been a collaboration whether addressing the role of the rear guard in La chanson de Roland or using the tale of the beauty and the beast as delay making material.  I find I am always in dialogue with other art work (other artists).


Once a year I also make collages with annually accumulated random paper.
