About the product

The oeuvre of British artist Stephen Cripps (1952–1982) was highly innovative and experimental. His works developed out of an interest for kinetic sculpture and machines as well as from a fascination for the poetic potential of explosion and destruction. Until his early death Cripps built machines and interactive installations and realised pyrotechnical performances. With his performative and multisensorial artistic practices he focussed primarily on experiments with sound. Cripps developed many of his projects in the medium of drawing and collage, which provide an insight into his rich and unconventional mindset.

The publication "Stephen Cripps. Performing Machines" turns the spotlight on the transmedia character and multisensory quality of Cripps’s oeuvre, even through its focus on the drawings. Through its combination of works on paper, audio material, film and documentary media, the exhibition sets out to showcase the hybrid quality of Cripps’s transmedia, multisensory, performative praxis. Drawings and sound recordings, the visual and the acoustic, thus complement each other in a feast for both eyes and ears.
