Video: Duggie Fields at The George Tavern

by Duggie Fields on 27 July 2005

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 idiosyncratic digital choreography.
