2013 / David Sherry / Humanist Cumulative / Patricia Fleming Projects
3 May - 15 Jun 2013
David Sherry’s solo exhibition Humanist Cumulative brings together a collection of new works. Common acts of social interaction and the resulting omnipresent etiquette are central themes in David Sherry’s work. In Humanist Cumulative Sherry provides an insight into the cultural codes and learned behaviours revealed in conversations, radio programs, newspaper articles or banal incidents in the street. As an artist Sherry also applies this enquiry to the way he engages with art. Sherry’s work provides another way of thinking about the aspirational philosophy often found in this type of exchange, peering into the laws of the social mesh, repelling an accepted discourse and embracing other forms of meaning common to us all.
