Darren Harvey Regan?s inspiring and quirky work tackles the difference between our self-awareness and the lack of self-awareness in the animal world.
He constructs sculptural tableaux and dramatic photographic scenes where representation is under scrutiny. His practice doesn?t express certainty, there is a lightness, humour and aesthetic simplicity ? all of which are devices designed to accommodate doubt or negotiation.
?There is a certain hybrid of photography and installation that has crept into my practice of late; an interplay between the photograph as object, the object as photograph. I aim to follow this by drawing on further ideas concerning limits and resistance, authorship (and the loss of it.) I see the medium of photography, with its treacherous relationship to truth claims, as being particularly pertinent to my concerns.........?As well as being a thing to think about, a piece becomes something to think with?.
