RE:Search Publications presented Gee Vauchers new video work “Angel” in an intimate North Beach gallery some weeks ago. I was lucky enough to connect with Vaucher shortly after the speaking panel concluded. Sadly, my not-so-trusty H4N malfunctioned. So this posts featured image is the only evidence I have of this otherwise engaging evening. But I thought I’d do a bit of a write-up anyway to share some thoughts.
Like many others, I became aware of Gee Vaucher’s art through the liners of CRASS records. It was years later when asked about a poster in my kitchen that I decided to dig in a bit more.
When I looked more into the story, I found her name and the history of Dial House. I was also greeted by the breadth and wealth of Vaucher’s work through the years, well outside the scope of the band.
This raw DIY-style Q&A recorded during the 2011 exhibit “IN ALL OUR DECADENCE PEOPLE DIE” gives an authentic sense of what it’s like to engage Vaucher in conversation.
