Kevin Harman, Everything, 2011 (glass, padlock)
Kevin Harman (b.1982) is a Scottish artist who creates works that intrigue, delight and provoke in equal measure. Harman's work frequently has an element of performance, even if the performance itself remains unseen until unveiled by the artwork. In this he confronts the barriers between the act of creation and the act of experience - linking the art and the audience in a moment of shared discovery.
Exploring the everyday to find the extraordinary, Harman works across media, often using the very objects in which he finds his inspiration as the principle component of his artworks. Harman's sculptures, prints, films and drawings serve as trophies of the creative process, giving us cause to consider the act of making as equally as important as the end product.
Harman graduated with an MFA in Sculpture from Edinburgh College of Art in 2010. His project 24/7, was commissioned by Edinburgh Art Festival 2012 and his first exhibition at Ingleby Gallery will be in Gallery II from 3 November - 22 December 2012.
