Lou Hubbard



It is my practice to perform operations on everyday materials, manipulating them into new relationships according to set, formal rules that I invent. This work continues my investigation into the nature of training, submission and subordination and the disciplinary spaces in which subjectivity and knowledge are formed.

My process is DIY, low-fi and positively domestic. Sometimes these strategies are witnessed and captured though a camera lens, resulting in videos that play on photography's power to index untenable actions. Sometimes the actions become sculptural assemblages that are fitted and measured and precariously balanced.
