Bio:

Jeremy Evans works in drawing, performance video and text, examining structures of understanding that we use consciously or otherwise to traffic with the world around us. As “the eye makes the horizon” so it is that frameworks such as beliefs, language, borders, and identities create and maintain the way that we traffic with the world, mediating our relationships with things. Some of these frameworks are made by the self, some created by society, history and culture. Increasingly the internet is the mediating factor, it both structures our behaviour and makes explicit some of our more subconscious structures. It is these frameworks that I examine in the belief that even if we cannot understand the structures themselves, the process of examination will reveal something of how we create and apply them.
