Jefford Horrigan lives and works in London. He makes performances and short films rooted in sculpture. In these works furniture and household objects are moved and manipulated until they take on a different entity. As well as honoring the usual working out, planning and thinking roles his drawing are often employed as a way to make performance proposals, substituting text and equally side stepping the demands for documentation. Some recent performances and exhibitions include: 2014 - die Nacht Pfau (performance). Centrum. Berlin. 2013 - The Facilitator: An Organized Love Story (performance) for The World Turned Upside Down: Buster Keaton, Sculpture and the Absurd. Mead Gallery. Warwick Arts Centre. Warwick.
