Duggie Fields

In a presentation of his digital films during a performance night "Live Humans" at The George Tavern -though not live themselves- the audacity and energy of veteran popster (or hard-edge post-Pop figuratist) Duggie Fields' which has been his benchmark for three and a half decades stood out as the liveliest contribution. Art Historian Neil Mulholland described his work as "one of the earliest manifestations of Jencksian post-punk art in Britain, the adolescent historicist neo-kitsch of Duggie Fields." Set against the Victoriana of the pub I enjoyed seeing these presented slightly awkwardly, and with the sound of the live audience giving an enlivening sense of appreciation for the idiosynchratic digital choreograhy.
