Here Come The Apocrophyl Swords
Tom Railton DWF | Peripherique @ Henry Moore Institute | Seminar Room
13.03.13 6pm - 8pm
Peripherique is a series of informal presentations held throughout the year at the Henry Moore Institute by artists who have previously worked there as Information Assistants. This first event of 2013 invites Tom Railton, who worked on the Information Team during 2005 and 2006, to discuss his work since graduating from Chelsea College of Art & Design in 2012.
Born in Coventry, England, Tom Railton studied and worked in Leeds until moving to London to take his Postgraduate Diploma at Chelsea College of Art and Design in 2011.
“Using a conceptual approach to sculptural materials and methods, I examine the processes behind making, replication and exhibition. I combine a joy for experimentation and open-ended enquiry with the possibilities of engagement with information. My work is enlivened by activity and exists as a result of an audience’s interaction. At its core is a dissemination and interpretation of knowledge made manifest. Acknowledging processes without overt display, a space is left for an audience’s own puzzlement and belief to fill the gaps.”
