David Spraggs - Speedfreak

 David Spraggs - Speedfreak, 2009

Spraggs older sculptural works are constructed from materials present in the 'everyday' and often become part of a critic of the readymade. With clear references to Duchamps 'Bicycle Wheel' 'Speedfreak' in a way suggests that Duchamp's actions worked to destabilize classical notions of art making and open up a new territory for art to operate within.

Spraggs also worked with Open File to produce 'Pavilion: Screening 23/11/11' as part of our series at Grand Union, more information and documentation can be found on our website in its Archive.
