‘Flanagan’s Wake’ by Peter Bach

1 May 2010

During the film, Peter Bach travels to St Louis, Kansas City, Des Moines, Minneapolis, Washington DC, New York filming people by the artist’s works in public places. He then showed the footage to the artist in Ibiza and filmed Flanagan’s responses to it, which include the artist writing in a spiral notebook. Bach next travelled to Europe – Dublin, Paris, London, Strasbourg, Madrid, Knokke, Gent, Venice – and was ready to show the artist more footage. But Barry Flanagan died and the film enters its third and final act.

“Flanagan’s Wake is a deliberately non-didactic look at Barry Flanagan’s work as seen through the eyes of others, artists, critics and curators and more often passersby, and as such represents a fresh look at Barry Flanagan in particular and the artist in general.”
