Elvis Richardson
Artist working in sculpture, photographic and collecting based practices

Open by appointment only

Elvis Richardson collects and curates personalised objects, imagery, and data she extracts from public sources and re-constructs them as the raw materials of her studio practice to comment on taste, class, the home, and her own agency as an artist when also trapped in an aspirational exposure-based system of certain economic precarity. Richardson assembles and modifies her found objects and images so as to disrupt the everyday commodification of lifestyle and satirically expose the promises, disappointments, and contradictions that we all live with.

"Im actually not sure how to answer this? how the community engages with me and my practices or the space that I rent or Room to Create? I am available any time via appointment and Im not sure what else to say?"
