Robin Deacon

(Eastbourne, United Kingdom, 1973)

Performer, writer and video artist, Robin Deacon graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Wales.

His first works, already characterised by the humour and satire that would impregnate later works, are based on the visual object manipulation. Later, he produced interventions in public spaces to question the limitations imposed on performance by temporal, spatial and social conventions. His most recent works, such as Harry&Me, Live and Colin Powell, explore, however, a journalistic approach to art through performed lectures. He has taken part in European festivals and given conferences at different universities.

He is currently course director of the Drama and Performance Studies Course at London South Bank University.
