Multimedia artist and songwriter Terry Allen creates object-based and performance works that he builds from narratives drawn from historical events, personal memories, pop culture, and the American landscape. For his exhibition “Ghost Ship Rodez: The Momo Chronicles” (2008-11), comprised of a series of multimedia installations and sculptures, Allen drew inspiration from the life of French artist, playwright, and actor Antonin Artaud. Explaining his fascination with Artaud, Allen said: “The inner life of any true artist has the traits of three essential characters: children (they are innocent), criminals (they break rules), and the insane (they inhabit another world).” In addition to sculptures, collages, drawings, recordings, and installations, Allen has also produced performances and public commissions.
