• Campbell Patterson

Drawing on the detritus of his surroundings, Campbell Patterson engages in conscious acts of repetition to document the banality and absurdity of everyday life – causing the ordinary to become abstract. Through the language of film, painting, sculpture, printmaking and text, he translates common materials, or habits, into formalist exercises that meditate on boredom as an aesthetic device.

toot floor is the outcome of Campbell Patterson’s 2017 Frances Hodgkins Fellowship and was first exhibited at Hocken Collections Uare Taoka o Hākena (17 February – 14 April 2018).
