Tom Badley

Solo Show

9 January until 6 February 2010

PV: 8 January, 7 - 9pm

Tom Badley is fascinated by themes of catastrophe and fragmentation. In particular, he is concerned with investigating the idea of 'Seamless Breakage': the paradoxical processes whereby things avert death through their own forms of auto-destruction, as both naturally occuring and an important aspect of our unique historical moment. His practice centres about notions of intentionality, bricolage, knowledge and destruction. Similarly, Badley's fragmentary video pieces utilize found material from the Internet. Mining thousands of appropriated videos, this content is cut - through highly labour intensive editing techniques - to produce music, as as a series of audio/visual metaphors.
