FREE ADMISSION

Tom Dale is a London-based artist whose grandiose sculptures, videos and installations explore the absurd and preposterous aspects of society.

Dale works across a number of disciplines and defines himself simply as an artist that doesn’t paint. His large scale sculptures, digital images and films all play a part in a practice that is as reflective as it is reactive. Known at different times though out his career for cutting the leaves of a plants into squares, shooting drum kits, or making giant inflatable leather castles, he is an artist that delights in confounding the ways in which we make meaning, as much as he does our expectations.

In this artist lecture Volatile Structures, Dale will discuss his key works and the way in which he deals with different forms of representation. The intertwining of the personal and the political, the shifting dynamics within this and the way in which art conveys a very specific form of knowledge are just some of the areas he will cover.

Tom Dale will be in residence in October and November 2017. During this time he will present Terminal Blue, a part-participatory public work, in Christchurch as a part of SCAPE Public Art, as well as engage in public programming in Wellington.

Tom Dale's residency is supported by SCAPE Public Art and Arts Council England.
