About

Jack Fisher presents a compelling new body of work that employs performance, sculpture, text, and found images/objects. In order to build up critical dialogues within non-linear narratives, Fisher discusses theoretical cultural and societal processes including cloning and their resulting repercussions.

Embracing and editing possibilities that proposed technologies and ideas suggest, Fisher employs an additive position that jumps between the observational/documentation of the digital quotidian, to propositions that interrupt and subvert the expected evolution of our culture and society.

In this way, Fisher asks socio-political questions regarding self-authorship and our relationships through meditations upon social negation and earnest gesture: works such as ‘I plan to clone myself and publicly execute the clone on the 14th of October 2018, 2016’ question the ethical viability of the disparity between selves (online and otherwise).

Utilising his various outputs as canvas and internet as brush, Fisher, from a critically suggestive position, is slowly generating a syncretic portrait of both himself and his experienced contemporaneity: merged. Fisher generates work that belies its awareness of himself as user, producer, protagonist, and ‘artist’, slyly inhabiting his roles with full cognizance of their historical implications.
