Dark humour, economy of means and precision are hallmarks of Zurich-based artist Sam Porritt’s practice. For Out of Place at Paradise Works, Porritt presents a dynamic new installation informed by contemporary concerns of displacement, surplus and need. Using a restrained portfolio of materials and construction techniques, this new site-specific work sees Porritt return to Paradise Works following his participation in the 2018 exhibition Tipping the Scales with Show.me.up. Porritt’s work is held in public and private collections in the UK and abroad.
