Steven Claydon’s work nods to the Modernist rhetoric, destabilising historical reference points in an attempt to disrupt the viewer’s feeling of nostalgia. Through the combination of old materials with contemporary elements, Claydon’s work locates itself in a space between the two, engendering a form of artistic diaspora.
Steven Claydon (born 1969 London, UK) lives and works in London. His recent solo exhibitions include: Total Social Objects, David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles, USA (2013); Rat. Pearl. London. Onion, Sadie Coles, London (2012) and Culpable Earth, Firstite, Colchester, UK (2012). Group exhibitions include, Assembly: A Survey of Recent Artists’ Film and Video in Britain 2008-2013, Tate Britain, London (2013); Busted, High Line Commission, various locations on the High Line, New York and SOUNDWORKS, at the ICA, London (2012).
