"Even more than usual I’ve been dreaming of new futures. Related to this, I’ve been thinking about board games as a way to understand societal systems. I love that probably the most famous board game, Monopoly, is derived from a critique of capitalist economy."
David Blandy has established his terrain through a series of investigations into the cultural forces that inform and influence him, in recent works examining a world after the Anthropocene era. His works slip between performance and video, reality and construct, using references sampled from the wide, disparate sources that provide his (and our own) individualist sense of self.
He has exhibited at venues nationally and worldwide such as Focal Point, Southend, UK; Bloomberg Space, London, UK; Art Tower Mito, Tokyo, Japan; Kiasma Contemporary Art Museum, Helsinki, Finland; Tate Modern, London, UK; The Baltic, Gateshead, UK; Turner Contemporary, Margate, UK; Spike Island, Bristol, UK; Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Germany; MoMA PS1, New York, USA, and Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai, China. He is represented by Seventeen Gallery, London.
