That I am reading backwards and into for a purpose, to go on

Installation view, That I am reading backwards and into for a purpose, to go on, The Kitchen

Initially I see and hear numerous bodies on screen; speaking, gesturing, rolling, walking, running, returning and repeating. But the space I inhabit, is absent of any consciously performing bodies.

Review by Alexandra Symons Sutcliffe.

Jon Pilkington
: Butterfingers

Butterfingers, Installation View

Jon Pilkington employs failure as a strategy for success, routinely revisiting early motifs until any suggestion of clear hierarchy can reasonably be questioned. These repeated moves promise to remain un-finished, following a trajectory that picks up new traditions along the way and adding to an ever growing ancestry of the artist’s vocabulary.
