Durbin Lewis Ltd
Durbin Lewis Ltd acts as a fictive shop/brand/dealership. While not oscillating around a singular creative personal narrative, it presents art objects under a naming strategy more akin to the distribution systems through which these objects are to be consumed. Working with photographic sculpture, which heavily utilises furniture and artifacts from previous centuries, the work negotiates non-tangible space as the duality between image as object and the haptic encounter between objects within photographic space. Through various photographic processes there is a conscientious desire for the glitch or filter effect as demonstrated by the proliferation of Instagram. This is manifested in the hybrid workflow of analogue and digital methods where the 'effect' in digital terms is generated through purposeful analogue error.
