Andrew Purvis likes to create elaborate fictions and absurd scenarios that dissolve the distinction between the real and the imagined. During his residency, Andrew will be initiating work on a new, long-term major project, one that will play with ideas of altruism and anonymity. Utilising a variety of techniques, including textiles and performance, the work will involve double-identities, an intense physical transformation and acts of flamboyant good will. Some of it is top secret… but you may have the chance to be initiated.
