Sleepwalker Daydream

Overview

Subbaiah’s work continually seeks to turn convention on its head and this he does utilizing a droll sense of humour, an acute awareness of art, philosophical and cultural historiographies as well as a wide array of media. The current show consists primarily of objects and represents nearly thirteen years of art production. In the words of the artist “People call me a ‘Duchamp baby’. Yes I belong to the ‘tradition’ of the avant-garde, but to combat the threat posed by the avant-garde against tradition – the threat of having formulated a full stop to tradition. I combat this threat by inventing variations of this full stop and turning it into a tradition.”
