To mark the opening of Making Art Public, acclaimed British artist Michael Landy appears in conversation with exhibition curator Nicholas Chambers as they uncover the complex and painstaking process of re-presenting 50 years of Kaldor Public Art Projects for this landmark exhibition.
Michael Landy is one of the Young British Artists (YBAs), a group of artists who achieved critical fame for their shock tactics and use of everyday materials in the 1990s. Landy is known especially for his performance and installation Break Down, 2001, in which he systematically destroyed all his personal possessions. His work examines what we value and what we discard, consumerism and waste, and human labour and its worth.
