David Attwood is a Perth based artist interested in the creative potential of irreverence. During his PICA residency he will take the process of consecration as a starting point for the development of new work. Through his use of the readymade and references to the history of conceptual art, Attwood will look at the potential of consecration to critique notions of skill and labour within contemporary art practice.
