Ron Athey

(performance artist)

 

“Performing Live Sex in a Post-AIDS Body: Self Obliterations 1/2/& 3”

 

 

Ron Athey is an American performance artist associated with body art and with extreme performance art. He has performed in the U.S. and internationally (especially in the UK and Europe). Athey's work explores challenging subjects like the relationships between desire, sexuality, and traumatic experience. Many of his works include aspects of S&M in order to confront pre-conceived ideas about the body in relation to masculinity and religious iconography. Athey's first performance was in 1981: 'Premature Ejaculation,' a collaboration with Christian Death's Rozz Williams. There were performances at the legendary Club Fuck!, an integral part of the early 80Õs queer scene in L.A. In the 1990s Athey's 'torture trilogy' addressed move esoteric and emotional responses to the AIDS pandemic, and stirred controversies around the risk of blood (in the U.S.) while at the same time having to address the Operation Spanner politics of the UK, wherein a person is not allowed to release the law on their own body. Since the early 90s his work has been commissioned and shown at the ICA London; Kampnagel, Hamburg; CCA, Glasgow, his company, solo and visual art works have been presented at MOCA Los Angeles, MADRE Museum Naples, Kanonhallen Copenhagen, Xteresa Mexico City, Festival Atlantico Lisbon, Danau Festival Krems Austria, Eurokaz Zagreb, Gallerija Kapelica Ljubljana, and many more. Currently Athey is working on the first book of his live art work commemorating 30 years of performing.
