Gareth Long is an artist with an incredible nose for cultural research. From video objects to books that write themselves, he possesses the singular ability to formalise the events and ideas he uncovers in compelling projects and artefacts. Complexity is never sacrificed, rather the aesthetic reward often resides in untangling each work’s conceptual threads.
