Reynir Hutber



I am a London-based artist and musician. I work across a range of mediums including live art, installation, sculpture and new media. My projects often involve a considered and critical use of digital technology and a concern with the mechanics and imposition of authority. A central theme of my practice explores how processes of mediation can restrict, distort and manipulate visual information and relates this to the historically problematic relationship of performance art to its documentation. I am also interested in the affect these processes have on our sense of responsibility to, and engagement and complicity in, what we ‘witness’ through the apparatus of modern media. I continue to be inspired by artists such as Chris Burden, Dan Graham, Stuart Brisley, Jon Kessler, Tania Bruguera and William Pope L. Recently my work has been shown at R O O M, London, and Arnolfini, Bristol. In May 2010 I was awarded 'The Catlin Art Prize' for an installation entitled 'Stay Behind The Line'. In 2012 I took part in FIERCE Festival, Birmingham, amd SPILL National Platform, Ipswich. I was nominated for international digital art award 'Le Prix Cube' in 2013.
