18th May – 3rd July 2021
Huxley-Parlour Gallery are delighted to announce Tobias Bradford as the third artist to exhibit in the the Huxley-Parlour Project Space. Bradford will present a robot band, who are afraid to be seen.
Bradford’s practice looks at sentience and the uncanny, specifically in sculpted mechanical engineering such as puppets and robots. He is interested in debates surrounding free will, agency, and the increasingly ambiguous definition of ‘self’ when it comes to semi-sentient objects. His work seeks to defamiliarise objects by replicating ordinary movements on a technical level, and in turn, making the mundane, strange.
Tobias Bradford is originally form Orebro, Sweden, and has exhibited widely across Stockholm, Sweden, and London, most recently exhibiting at “Future Watch: Tio Konstnärer i tiden” at Stockholm Kulturhuset. Tobias studied at Goldsmiths in London, and is currently doing a masters at the Royal Art Institute of Stockholm.
