ESW is delighted to announce that Augustus Veinoglou, the recipient of the 2011-12 ECA/ESW Bursary will start his residency in the new building in June.
Augutus' work is concerned with ideas of immersion, entrapment and sanctity as the means of instigating calm, desire and sensuality within poetically designed space. He is interested incorporating tactile and material based approaches for the construction of poetic spatial experiences.
His sculptural practice is informed by architectural theory, mental spaces and the architecture of the curved stone churches and troglodyte caves of Cappadocia.
His practice is currently focussed on ideas related to the subtraction - removal of physical space and material as the means of discovering new poetics and dynamics within our current built environment.
