Hetain Patel lecture

I found that this lecture totally contrasted all the others that I have been to over the past week or so, as Hetain Patel's performance artwork was totally different to the more illustration and photography based work I have been studying. Whilst I thought that the live henna artwork and the piece 'To Dance Like Your Dad', where he copied the movements and words of his father as part of a film, were intriguing and challenged my ideas of performance art, overall I didn't really like his work. Although I understood the themes he was exploring, I don't really think this type of art inspires me and I personally find the theme of identity is one that is kind of overrated and over-explored.
