Andrew Gannon

Andrew Gannon is a contemporary artist who I was introduced to as part of my third workshop project. He produces graphic illustrations of movements he wants the audience to carry out with instructions of how to do so.

Gannon’s technique of giving the audience instructions means they involve themselves in the piece of art and forces them to think about the work during and after their interaction with the piece. Involving the audience in the piece of artwork can help with their understanding of the work and interpret it in a way which is tailored to them. Allowing the audience to interact with the art means it is more accessible to all kinds of people with different artistic interests and understanding.
