Avoidance (A project of Transparency)

Jesse Ash’s work configures a personal and material relationship to politics by imposing processes of reconstruction and abstraction upon existing images, sounds and words of disseminated ideology.

His work often uses the formal supports of these contemporary authorities such as political convention stage sets, newspaper imagery, rhetorical devises, gestures or advertising strategies as material to combine with processes of delicate craft and personally driven narratives. Interested in the radical potential of speech, rumour and gossip through his completed PhD research, Ash’s work is concerned with the processes of uncovering content—treating the process of unearthing as a place where content is equally present.

Come along to the Visiting Artist Talk on Thursday 30th January, at BridgeWardens College in the Historic Dockyard Chatham.
