Paul Hawkins aka Bob Modem // EACHWHAT INDUSTRIES #beyourownpirate #helpyourself
Know where you should be, why & when.
EACHWHAT INDUSTRIES is usually but not singularly Bob Modem.
EACHWHAT Industries (°1964, London, UK) makes collage, paintings, photos, drawings, poetry, text and performance(s).
EACHWHAT works are given improper functions.
EACHWHAT works by putting the viewer on the wrong track, in which the actual event still has to take place or has just ended; the memory of an event that will never take place.
By investigating language, EACHWHAT often creates several practically identical works, upon which thoughts that have apparently just been developed are manifested: notes are made and then crossed out again, ‘mistakes’ are repeated.
EACHWHAT works focus on the inability of communication which is used to visualise reality, the attempt of dialogue, the dissonance between form and content and the dysfunctions of language. In short, lack of clear references are key elements in the work.
EACHWHAT INDUSTRIES realise that anarchy works best.
EACHWHAT works question the conditions of appearance of an image in the context of contemporary visual culture in which images, representations and ideas normally function. EACHWHAT Industries currently lives and works in Bristol.
