Harry Hurlock’s work centralises around a sarcastic irreverence of contemporary art. Using archetypal and clichéd artistic language to redefine the role of an artist as one of a court-jester; both ridiculing and legitimising the absurdity of pretentious self-expression.
By using misappropriated images of protest and outrage, he defines the limited capacity of contemporary art practise to affect real-world change as mere self-importance and pretence. In satirising expressionism and the ridiculousness of catharsis in art, it becomes a discussion of the commodification of art and the internet age, image sharing presents us with depravity and horror to the point of desensitisation in a constant stream.
The Hutt Collective consists of Ciarán Harrington, Joe Rowley and Rebecca Scofield.
Opening times: Thursday – Saturday 12 – 6pm
