James Clarkson

James Clarkson makes sculpture and photography that is visually mimetic. Borrowing modes of object and material fetishism from digital remix-culture and the aesthetic simplification of mass-production, James Clarkson’s work deals with the perpetual déjà vu of where we are now. His works look to understand why the objects we buy feel so familiar, whilst also existing in a state of otherness that presents them as something new. The objects he makes explore seemingly mundane objects – a car, a piece of clothing, a vase. By deconstructing or re-presenting these objects he holds them up to a new light, exploring a subverted retelling of the objects understood meaning.
