Tim Etchells (Sheffield, England)

PuSh has a long-standing interest in the work of Tim Etchells, mainly through presentations of his theatre-based work as artistic director of Forced Entertainment (Exquisite Pain, Quizoola) but also through his collaborations with other artists (That Night Follows Day with CAMPO, The Quiet Volume with Ant Hampton). As a PuSh 2014 artist-in-residence, we join forces with our counterparts in the visual arts to embrace the full scope of his interests.
Whether on stage or off, Etchells is “concerned with liveness and presence, with the unfolding of events in time and place… At the centre of many of the projects there is a fascination with rules and systems in language and in culture, on the way these systems are both productive and constraining.”
