Live art practices have often raised questions about recording what happens: How can any document give a sense of the live experience? Can a performance be saved, recorded, documented or represented in any way? As soon as it is, it becomes something else: a photograph, a text or a memory. Manuel Vason is interested in these difficulties of representation. Although photography is always seen as the most accurate way of recording an event, Vason shows how photography is also a tool of creation. Vason does not simply capture an image of a performance, he is involved with the artist in creating the ideas and then staging the image. In his images, Vason does not attempt to sum up a whole performance, but rather works closely with each artist to devise a new event; one staged specifically for the camera.
