Jack Cheetham presents the (un)finished outcomes from his time in residence at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop.
Jack Cheetham’s most recent work has aimed to explore why people attach importance to specific places and things, through paraphernalia associated with certain lifestyles and re-contextualization of particular moments. Through versions of recycling, ornamentation and editing processes he questions contemporary ideas of masculinity, labour, tradition, storytelling, identity, education, humour, and fantasy.
