Alex Farrar

Alex Farrar¬†works are often playful, he¬†manipulates ordinary objects for their performative potential. Acknowledging a lack of absolute control he creates the conditions for something to happen, the outcome of this happening isn’t fixed but depends completely on the engagement with viewers, location and duration.

Alex Farrar was born in 1986 in Leeds and after attending the Foundation course at Leeds College of Art, he gained his BA in Fine Art at Leeds Metropolitan University in 2009 and in 2010, was given a BFA from the Audio Visual department, at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy.
