Brent Harris: Posteering
Posteering responds to the performance art practice of Brent Harris and shares its name with Harris’s series of performances on Christchurch footpaths, as part of The Physics Room programme in 2013.
The book comprises two essays, Maria O’Connor’s “night drifts” and Harris’s “Posteering.” Each essay explores relations between Harris’s practice and writings of Emmanuel Levinas and Maurice Blanchot. The book engages with ideas of friendship, responsibility and absolute passivity.
Harris’s essay draws on parts of his practice-led PhD, completed in 2013 at The School of Art + Design, Auckland University of Technology.
