Though the antecedents of Lee Walton’s work are clear -
Cage, Long, Nauman, Aders - he nevertheless brings
something new to what could be called the algorithmic
performance genre:
there’s the pleasure of the sportscast to be derived from his lazy
athleticism ( like parkour/free running on downers),
there’s a contemporary comedy of embarrasment edge
& also his videos are rather lovely, slow evocations of place & time…
