“Performance Art and YouTube Vlogging”

Meredith Godley is a West Australian based performance artist. Having successfully completed her fine art degree with Honours, she is currently studying her Doctorate of Creative Art and teaching at Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia. Meredith has exhibited locally / nationally and has curated group exhibitions. Her performances are videoed and presented digitally and also performed as live multimedia art installations. Thematically her work has long blurred boundaries between pop culture and performance art. In commenting on the accessibility of performance art, she initially drew from reality TV to inform her performance style and presentation. Following on from this, her current project is positioned within the virtual video-logging (vlogging) community of YouTube. Here she examines notions of the multiple self and explores YouTube as a platform for contemporary performance art. She is currently in the UK to present a conference paper at ‘Rewire: the fourth international conference on media art histories’ (hosted by FACT, the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) at John Moores University, Liverpool and to deliver an artist talk at the Centre for Performance Research at Aberystwyth University in Wales.
