Jon Fawcett’s work explores activity beyond normal conceptions of what is real and what is possible. Developed from research into conspiracy theories, new age ideas and new science, his object-based work is highly engineered, incorporating military or high-end materials and technologies.
Fawcett’s work re-mystifies our reality and re-empowers us, offering us an essentially politicised freedom of both perception and action.
Jon Fawcett discusses his work as part of Artist Talks on Friday 17 August.
