Die Abteilung Bildhauerei - transmedialer Raum lädt zum Vortrag von Alexander Jackson Wyatt.
Often culminating in sculpture and installation, Jackson Wyatt’s cross-disciplinary practice works through found and sourced materials in combination with text, photography, sound and video. His work is anchored by a confusion of images, language and design; architecture and urban space; developed into spatial interventions or ephemeral situations; so as to challenge a viewer awareness and perception of space.
