Brave, Stupid, or Just Exciting?

Filming 'Still Yourself and Calm Your Boots', 2014 on location at High House Production Park, Purfleet.


Should William Hunt be referred to as an artist, an actor, or a filmmaker? From his unusual style it is hard to say. The best way to describe him is as a performer. His exhibitions are all performance based, bringing together installations, video footage, and music into an exciting show for his audience.

Hunt starts out by performing a scene on camera, which is later to be used as documented footage and photography for his installation.

Somewhat of a daredevil, Hunt incites his audience to experience a whole range of emotions, intentionally trying to generate tension, joy, pain, anger, fear, love, etc.

For his latest exhibition, Playing The Goat, Hunt presents two films at the PEER gallery, which can be seen until the 6th December. The first is an interview from 2012, in which he answers questions about his work. The second is an ambitious commission that sees him perform a dangerous stunt: Driving a car into a concrete barrier, before getting out to sing a song about love. Still Yourself and Calm Your Boots is shot at different angles from outside and inside the vehicle, so viewers feel a sense of peril and get a cinematic experience.
