BRIAN GRIFFITHS : NO NO TO KNOCK-KNOCKS
Jan 24 - Mar 17, 2018
For the third exhibition in Blain|Southern’s Lodger series, the British sculptor Brian Griffiths has drawn on stage- and screen-writing techniques to develop a ‘character’ who will inhabit the gallery’s basement space. Appearing in a series of sculptural situations, often on the point of collapse, or running through some seemingly meaningless protocol, Griffiths’ creation is a tragi-comic figure: a naked, puppet-like Caucasian male who seems not to know that his strings – if they ever held him up – have now been decisively cut. Bald, blind, and with his pink paintwork and wooden body showing signs of wear and tear, this little performer clunks through his part.
