Although the artist is versed in a range of disciplines, for the most part his practice remains firmly grounded within the world of objects. Using language as his starting point, he transforms sound, speech, rhymes, puns and repetitions into something more concrete. Akin to poetry, these text-based pieces are short and sharp, designed to be read aloud, vocalised and performed. In addition to many objects sourced from public collections, this major survey features significant works remade or reconfigured by the artist specifically for the exhibition.
