Videostills from the performance Isolation
Izola, Slovenia, 2020
The island took four days to be build, and for a fleeting moment it (the man-made island) was the only one in the Slovenian sea.

Brad Downey is one of the free people. Not a throw-back but slightly out-of-place in these controlled times. He is from the US and so carries that weight around, but lightly, as though it is not such a burden as we know it to be. It is a kind of mentally athletic suppleness he has. If he encounters a fence, a wall, a barrier of any kind, his impulse seems to be to poke a hole in it. Then he can hang some art in the hole. But his ideas about what constitutes art are completely free, unfettered, and uncontrolled.
