Mike Harvey

UK & Ireland Artist in Residence

Artist Intro

In Mike Harvey's practice “there is an ever-present concern with translating and fragmenting formal boundaries. The sonic becomes image; the sculptural is recoded into digital. Within these redistributed mediums 'marker objects'... act as bridges back into the prevailing order of signification, to elaborate an expanded aesthetic exploration of these emblems of collectivity.” The resultant work focuses on 'carving out a curiously personal space for reflection between displacement and belonging, individual and structure, fascination and fear.'1 Mike Harvey's work has been shown at Good Job, Hackney Picturehouse, the ICA, Seoul Artspace and project spaces such as The Hole and Sauna 297. 1.
