JOSHUA NEAL CLACK
"In a culture saturated in appropriation and digital manipulation, is it important for anything to be original? What status clings to originality, and how does this change when object or event meets audience?
My practice explores the material residue of British subcultures and their celebration and exhibition. Working with analogue methods, I shoot photos on film, produce my own vinyl records and screen print my own clothing. I work within and against a prevalent attitude of disposability by reproducing, redescribing, re-presenting and repeating to make materials to be cherished, precious mementos and sacred relics of fleeting experiences."
