Penny Arcade (1950)
Artworks by this artist
Alone with the Sea, 2017
In the video Alone with the Sea, the American, avant-garde artist and actress, Penny Arcade (b. 1950, New Britain) uses the ship as a metaphor. Her portrayal shows that artists are not captains who are giving orders and taking decisive action from a closed-off cabin. All they do is assume a vulnerable position, in the hope of revealing a truth about our existence. Her photos highlight the importance of transformation, and the tenacity of human desire.
Live action / performance: You can see Penny Arcade at work in the Kleine Post in a sharp standupshow
