Statement

 

Ian Brown’s practice investigates advancements in technology and tests the progression and optimism associated with these developments against the problems of our everyday usage of them, taking into consideration the relationship between the invented world and the natural world.

For Trying to Cope with Things that Aren't Human (Part One) Brown will use the gallery space and the street outside. A car is parked outside with a sunstrip window sticker declaring the first part of a statement “ Eventually I will rust and die”. Inside the gallery a replica model of the real car continues the text, on its own miniature sunstrip. The work raises issues surrounding the automobile as a tool to access the wilderness but also one which is capable of destroying parts of it. He will also be including Lifting the Three Colts, video evidence of a toy diggers futile attempts to lift the wall of the gallery.

Brown is the MA Fine Art Course Leader at Staffordshire University and has had exhibitions in Iceland, Sweden, America and throughout the UK. He is also part of the collaborative artist’s group, Common Culture, with David Campbell and Mark Durden. Common Culture have had recent shows at Void in Derry, the Photographers’ Gallery, London and have shown work as part of the Liverpool European City of Culture events in ‘Variable Capital’ at the Bluecoat Gallery. They exhibited in the 6th Shanghai Biennial and were also selected by curator Hou Hanru to be part of EV+A, Limerick 08. Common Culture are represented by Third Space Gallery, Belfast
