Joe Orr

Joe Orr’s sculptures, performances and installations use humour to undermine the ‘seriousness’ of the art world, and the authority of the art object. Orr traces his willingness to poke fun at his own work and contemporary art to visits he made with his father to art galleries as a young boy, when he would be encouraged to laugh at many of the works on display. For Follow, Orr will explore artistic production by combining traditional sign writing techniques with the platform many contemporary artists now use to disseminate their work; Instagram.
