About The Work

Keith Farquhar’s work engages with everyday objects, materials and technological processes. It aims to advance the proposition of the Duchampian readymade and to distill and reimagine the artistic gesture in ways that are speculative & open-ended. The often overlooked cultural signifiers that shape his work are the same components that form the background ambience of contemporary life, each providing clues to activities personally undertaken or observed first-hand.

Within this latest body of work, there is a return to working with clothing – material that’s been fundamental to Farquhar’s practice for over 20 years. Farquhar’s work is underscored by a subtle humanism – a concern for the human subject amid conditions that radically alienate us from ourselves and our environment. With this new work, the artist may be attempting to disrupt and unsettle the social conventions of the progressive classes, exposing the routines of our everyday lives to undermine our habits of tacit acceptance, seeking to reveal and highlight previously unacknowledged realities and thus generate potentials for resistance and resilience.
