Artist Moving Image programme: Steven Claydon

Thursday 10 July / 7pm / Free (donations welcome)
Pre-booking essential online via Eventbrite.  

 

London-based artist Steven Claydon works across multiple media including sculpture, printmaking and video, often investigating fictional histories and methods of musicological display. This programme brings together a selection of Claydon’s moving images work made over the last decade.

 

Steven Claydon’s work nods to the Modernist rhetoric, destabilising historical reference points in an attempt to disrupt the viewer’s feeling of nostalgia. Through the combination of old materials with contemporary elements, Claydon’s work locates itself in a space between the two, engendering a form of artistic diaspora. 

 

Steven Claydon (born 1969 London, UK) lives and works in London. His recent solo exhibitions include: Total Social Objects, David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles, USA (2013); Rat. Pearl. London. Onion, Sadie Coles, London (2012) and Culpable Earth, Firstite, Colchester, UK (2012). Group exhibitions include, Assembly: A Survey of Recent Artists’ Film and Video in Britain 2008-2013, Tate Britain, London (2013); Busted, High Line Commission, various locations on the High Line, New York and SOUNDWORKS, at the ICA, London (2012). In 2015, Claydon will launch a solo exhibition at the Centre D’Art Contemporain Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland.
