LISTEN

Simon Lee



Will Goes on location to interview Simon Lee in his studio in the sky. Simon who, with wife Eve Sussman and friend Lee Boroson, struck out into the Wilds of Williamsburg oh-so-many-many years ago. Simon talks a bit about the effect of poetry on his career (certain books that just won't go away) and when an artist is at the right point to interpret another artist's work. Simon's most recent project, with composer Algis Antanas Kizys, is Where is the Black Beast?, which uses Ted Hughes' 1970 volume Crow as a jumping off point. Plus an awesome story about actually living in Socrates Sculpture Park, and not as an art work, ala Ward Shelley. See also our the companion interviews with Boroson, Sussman, Shelley, and other Williamsburg artists in the ARTonAIR.org archive. (37 minutes)
