Brian J Morrison’s work is informed by the physicality of the body in relation to the production and consumption of art, and considers how art objects might be capable of offering alternative relationships to the gendered body.
Morrison draws aesthetic inspiration from the work of the 1960s Minimalist sculpture movement and the reactive process driven art that followed, where ideas of gendered art objects are prevalent. The work in TENSION, produced for The Birley, develops his relationship with two specific materials, mild steel and latex, via a series of performative physical actions.
Brian J Morrison is an Irish artist based in Birmingham, he has exhibited work in the UK and Europe and was the the Standpoint Futures representative for England in 2015.
This exhibition has been supported by the Contemporary Art Development Group at The University of Central Lancashire and the Arts Council of England.
