William Mackrell
Vortrag und Diskussion über seine Arbeit
William Mackrell wohnt im September in den Lichtenberg Studios und erkundet den Bezirk.

“My practice shifts across sculpture, video and performance. I use materials and mediums that allow me to articulate an idea in the most clear and immediate means possible. I am attempting to question my language as an unravelling process, and this itself becomes the content of my work.
Often I use repetitive strategies to measure a sense of time and/or place. The myth of Sisyphus’s cyclical and futile attempts at trying, failing and trying again influence how I consider the extraordinary to stem from my accumulative endeavours.”

William Mackrell completed his BA Painting at Chelsea College of Art, London in 2005 before undertaking an MFA Fine Art at Goldsmiths College this coming September.

A decoder of urban spaces, João Vasco Paiva (b. 1979, Portugal) is a Hong Kong based artist who observes the complex and predominantly chaotic characteristics of metropolises. The sounds and systems of bustling streets, rushing metros and densely constructed spaces are the core subjects of Paiva’s work, which he systematically documents, analyses, abstracts and reduces to create a codified interpretation that is simultaneously an artwork. At the heart of Paiva’s practice is an interest in finding an order and inner logic to urbanity’s intrinsic complexity.
