Philip Newcombe

° 1970

Lives in London (United Kingdom), born in Germany.

Philip Newcombe transfers objects out of their everyday context by way of subtle manipulations and well-aimed interventions. The original function and meaning of the object shifts and integrates itself within the exhibition space. Newcombe has his common objects communicate with viewers through a game that alternates between recognition, formalism and language, which often yields some amazing poetry. An Eiffel Tower as a doorstop, for instance, or a pink lolly as a child's coat hanger on an immaculate white wall.
