THE BODY OF ART

video
THE BODY OF ART - BBC Radio 4,  Tuesday 9th June 2009.
Bob Dickinson talks to performance artists who have used their own bodies as a site for art, and in doing so challenged the limits of what it means to be human.
Including Stellarc, Orlan, Marina Abramovic, Franko B, Tehching Hsieh and the Chinese artist He Yun Chang, Bob Dickinson asks what makes them want to endure discomfort, pain and isolation. He reports on the way in which certain artists are now moving away from the limited space of their bodies, fascinated by the way technology and genetic engineering are remapping our understanding of the self.
