Self Burial

by Arnatt, Keith

1969

The television version of Self Burial was adapted from an existing photographic work (now in the Tate Collection). Each of the nine still images was transmitted without explanation or introduction for two seconds on successive nights on WDR Television, Cologne. In this version made for the BBC, Keith Arnatt reconstructs and re-stages the work. 'It was originally made as a comment upon the notion of "the disappearance of the art object". It seemed a logical corollary that the artist should also disappear.' Keith Arnatt 1979
