Gallery 3

 

Working with performance, installation, video and photography, David Cross has focused on the relationship between pleasure, the grotesque and the phobic. His small to large- scale installation work links performance art (through audience participation) with object-based environments.

The artist’s work often employs a range of objects – many of which are inflatable – to draw audiences into potentially unexpected situations and dialogues.

 

‘Lean’ is a series of four seemingly identical white sculptures that audience members can stand on, literally lean against and pass through. What happens in each structure however is in no way uniform.
