Samuel Fisher


Taxonomy


Blenheim Walk


19 October - 6 November


Leeds Artist Samuel Fisher studied architecture at the University of Cambridge and his primary interest lies in architecture being commoditised for investment vehicles reducing buildings to the lowest common denominator; homogenous spaces of consumption, production or transit. Partly inspired by the geometries of Islamic art, his photoconstructed works capture stages of construction that act as brief moments of redemption before the buildings relapse into a mundane state for the remainder of their lives. Other work focuses upon abandoned buildings from the mid twentieth century and low-technology represented as a form of heightened beauty.
