I Am Cinema (2010), work by Savage

May 30, 2010


Sunday 30th May 2010 at 7:00 p.m. at Bait Makan, the artist’s studio/home.

Artists do various things, some tell stories, others paint, some go on world tours and some wonder about life. This artist invites you to his home.

Savage is a conceptual artist, writer and senior lecturer in interdisciplinary art & design working and living in Bristol and Berlin. Through his artwork, he plays with notions of ownership, the rites of exchange and social value systems, all the while invariably borrowing from fiction, cinema and advertising in a bid to create new urban mythologies.

 

I Am Cinema was resultant from a research fellowship undertaken as part of the residency program at Makan and was funded by Gasworks, London.
