Jamie McMurry

Jamie McMurry has been presenting works of original performance all over the world since 1990. He also curates and organises and annual exhibition of performance and installation art called Full Nelson. McMurry currently resides in Los Angeles.

McMurry's work deals with the deviant and the disposed. Most actions that he engages in involve physically difficult or dangerous tasks that generate an anxiety in both those observing the action and the artist.

Jamie McMurry

I feel that performance is the most vital of the artistic genres with the potential for great range and power. The more we see performance, the more performance we see in our surroundings and the more we will be driven to generate our own actions. Action manifests ideas.
