(b. 1979) Jeremy Hutchison is a British artist based in London. Working across video, sculpture, drawing and performance, he intervenes in systems and structures: queering power, disordering norms, producing crises.
His works are playful, often absurd. But embedded in their subversive logic is a challenge to the tyranny of common sense. A belief that other worlds are possible. And a zealous conviction that art can bring them into being.
He thinks about : Power, Empire, reason, limits, humour, consumerism, Mark Zuckerberg, myths, farce, ideology, disobedience, Jacques Tati, post-colonial theory, sense, resistance, advertising, disinformation, para-fictions and the counter-hegemonic power of nonsense.
He has exhibited at the ICA, Modern Art Oxford, Fondazione Prada, EVA Biennale, Z33, Kunstverein Wiesbaden, Victoria & Albert Museum, Jerwood Space, Korean Cultural Centre and Southbank Centre. Residencies include Delfina Foundation, Raw Material Company, Arts Catalyst, SOMA and Hospitalfield.
Having attended the Slade School for Fine Art (MA, Distinction), he was a fellow of the Whitney Museum Studio Program. He lectures at Goldsmith’s and London College of Communication, and is the founder + curator of Kunsthallo gallery.
Drop him a line : he loves studio visits, and he doesn’t talk in the third person.
