Richard Palser

MA Fine Art

My research looks at connections between the reality of sites and the interventions made by artists. The resulting practice focuses on everyday situations, using everyday objects, which are documented, in order to disseminate and recreate the work, away from the site. The aim of this is to investigate how much my interventions affect the viewer’s understanding of the reality of place and how that affects their frame of view: whether this limits or expands what is seen. By ‘frame’, I mean all that can be seen by the viewer, as defined by the intervention.

Intervention in my work appears as cinema, where a ‘cinema’ is created to direct the viewer to a reality, foregrounding the act of looking as a process, and enfolding the screen where the ‘film’ is shown, into the reality of the site.

Research into conceptualist and post-conceptualist approaches, and current relational concerns which focus on audience, are combined with phenomenological, experience-based theorising. I pare down intervention, to explore the idea of the viewer being directed to reality, questioning the difference between ‘art’ and ‘reality’, thereby asking the viewer not only to experience the site, but become the draftsman, imaginer and explorer of reality.
