Grayson Perry Speaks

Grayson Perry a self confessed "transvestite potter" who has "come out as a craftsman". Currently delivering the Reith Lectures at the Tate. This collection of videos presents a background to the lectures. There are two slide lectures by the artist about his work, one in Sydney and one on his home turf in London, separated by several years and the work produced in that time. An interview hosted by the Guardian where he answers audience questions. Most telling perhaps is the "In confidence" interview which goes beyond the artist-performer persona and provides glimpses of the man beneath the dress. There are repetitions of ideas, explanations and examples and you are left wondering how much of this is the man and how much is the therapy.
