Artist and curator Richard Priestley creates ephemeratic objects and installations from cardboard or DIY materials, the dialogue of which is orientated towards a simulated iconographic culture. Taking the form of clad paneled structures the work exists only in correlation to selected artworks within it. By rallying a group and collective ideas of collaborative spirit Priestley raises questions about authorship and the role of the artist/curator.
Priestley lives and works in London and is artist-curator at Cell Project Space. Group exhibitions include: Craft, Cell Project Space, London The Future is Stupid, MAMA showroom, Rotterdam, NL. 6th Sharjah International Biennial, curated by Peter Lewis.
