ELLIOT KERVYN 

 

 

With a focus on production and consumption processes, Kervyn’s work manifests across a variety of media and takes the shape of site specific installations often including performances. Oscillating between handmade and ready-made objects Kervyn work is often associated with figures, themes, topics, categories or even caricatures. The installations become laboratories for experimentation, connected to a familiar world but looking for its underlying structures. Projects appear as results or starting points, reflecting on contemporary art production and exhibition conventions.

 

Kervyn critically examines structures of object manufacture and consumption. With a particular interest in the loss of control over production techniques, as well as commercial and psychological patterns that channel the consumption of material and abstract objects.
