ART150 Forums: George Edgerton-Warburton
See more events from
George Egerton-Warburton employs text, performance, sculpture, painting and video to create a stylistic dissonance and explore the syntax of conceptual art. Referring to day-to-day situations, Egerton-Warburton examines the discord between impulses and behaviour shaped by cultural norms. His work, varying in scale and duration, corresponds to the distortion of time in space constructed by late capitalism. At odds with this space, Egerton-Warburton questions it's effect on mental health, social structures, his relationship with the natural landscape that is simultaneously nostalgic and destructive, and the body's agency under administrative labour processes required of it. He creates elusive situations anchored by droll humour and irony.
The ART150 Forum Series features artists discussing their work and ideas, followed by a Q&A. It's part of ART150: Celebrating 150 years of Art.
