JON BURGERMAN ARTIST STATEMENT
My work oscillates somewhere between fine art, urban art and pop-culture, using dry humour to reference and question western contemporary milieu.
Performance, intervention and actively engaging, often directly, with an audience has been prominent within the evolution of my practise. I want to create a world of work that would encourage others to participate in and feel creatively empowered by. This includes works with a focus on what I'd call a 'quiet intervention', where subtle, often cheap, nonpermanent actions drastically (and sometimes comically) alter the reading of a signifier, object or situation. Through these playful, creative acts, art can act as an agent to change the world, by being the catalysis to allow people to change their worlds.
