Portfolio of Jack Williams
|The work of Jack Williams explores the constructed cultural identity of objects and text and their ‘usefulness’ as documents. Williams subverts or recontextulises these meanings by ‘robbing’ the objects out of their original context to place them in situations that disturb or shift their ‘naturalness’. Williams work contains underlying themes of the experience of exisiting with a ‘supermodern’ culture. This existence is paradoxical, with both enjoyment and ambigiouity. |
The mediums by which the work presents itself are pluralistic, ranging from documentation of Wikipedia lectures, soundbites of Wimbledon, suspended car air freshners, and activites of flicking elastic bands into a box. Williams’ works between screen-printing, photo-etching, object-assembledge, performance, audio-visual, adopting to the relevant medium that the conversation of work demands.
