George Henry Longly
°1978, Taunton (UK) – lives and works in London (UK)
George Henry Longly’s work employs readymade objects, stickers, marble and materials with common associations to both consumer fantasy and product design to engage with modes of display and notions of what constitutes professional activity, lifestyle and creative labour.
He has explicitly enforced parallels between art history and the fashion industry within performances based on the structure of a runway show. Combining disparate references ranging from The Flintstones to lifestyle brand Diptique within a method of making that is more akin to an industrial design process, Longly’s work flirts with it’s own potential to exist elsewhere within the cultural landscape.
