Fur - Art Exhibition - Michael Reid Gallery

Gerwyn Davies
Fur

16 Jun - 18 Jul 2020

Using readymade and everyday materials, Gerwyn Davies assembles characters through costume that simultaneously conceal, transform and abstract the body. These highly stylised and exaggerated transformations are regenerative, they form part of an ongoing inventory of photographic self-projections.

Gerwyn’s practice is intentionally excessive and playful. In each work a new character steps forward within a hyperreal set, asking us to reflect upon the body, costume, context and movement. As we dress and step into our daily roles, Gerwyn’s artistic practice is a great reminder of the narratives we construct for ourselves, backed with a hint of humour.

A regular finalist in photographic awards including Photo LA, the Alice Prize and the Olive Cotton Award, and having been featured in the British Journal of Photography, Gerwyn’s career is on the rise. We are pleased to be presenting his European debut solo exhibition.
