RIGHT NOW nine

Brian Fuata is a performance artist. He uses words and movement to tell stories that are personal and impersonal, rational and irrational, about nothing and everything. Brian's presence is a force, he is charismatic and gentle, spontaneous and thoughtful, erratic and committed. His contribution to RIGHT NOW was four images and four texts made in collaboration with visual artist Pete Volich. The images were in colour, as were the texts. Now they are black and white.

I arranged them as a set of four on the page and overlayed them with the texts, also arranged in a set of four. I feel that collating, or layering, these two modes of expression like this is oddly parallel to the layering of clothes to create figures from nothing, the use of text to conjure voices from nowhere.

Thank you, Brian.
