‘Artists have a lonely job and success is often elusive,’ says Orr. ‘Life in the studio is not all it’s cracked up to be, but it is there that dross can be turned into gold. Each of my Miseries is subjected to the cliché and reputations that haunt them.’
‘In 1967 I went to Hamburg to visit my friend Konrad Schultz, a fellow student from the Royal College of Art. I was impressed by a Joseph Beuys sculpture show I saw there. It had a lot of grease-and-felt pieces. […] There was a legendary event with a coyote. […] What intrigued me was the audience. […] So, in my picture, more than half the interest is in the audience, ranged up in church-like pews, who are dealing with each other, largely ignoring Beuys and the coyotes. All my spectators at the Beuys event are putting on a performance. The coyotes look pretty tame, but the audience is fierce.’
