Three Conceits: an exhibition by current B.a.d guest Joseph Breikers
21 September 2018, 7–9 pm
At the core of my practice is an interest in humour and language and their ability to engage with areas of slippage and overlap. Since graduating with honours in 2006, I have worked across various media, including sculpture, drawing, painting, video, and installation. During this time, I have also experimented with collaboration, sound, performance, writing, and music-based events.
My work often develops from my engagement with text and semiotics and my concern with the tropes of the underclass. I am interested in using humour and language to find new ways of understanding how the complex field of intellectual and socio-political contexts impact on the role and expectations of contemporary art. I am also drawn to humour as a possible strategy for deflecting traditional systems of exegesis.
