Anne Bean interview in The Guardian

18 August 2021

In this interview in The Guardian, Anne Bean has been revisiting her past: on 21 August, the pioneering performance artist is taking part in a 10-hour “durational live event” as part of PSX: A Decade of Performance Art in the UK. This required her to look back on five decades of practice – her past work, she says is “intimately linked” to her present – and takes place at The Ugly Duck event space in Bermondsey, not far from the Butler’s Wharf studio where Bean worked from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s.
