Through painting, video, installation and writing, Shaun Motsi's work considers the ways in which cultural narratives are constructed, inherited, appropriated over time and across geographies.
Shaun is interested in how the abstract processes of worldmaking and knowledge production resonate with or contradict more concrete processes behind the production and distribution of contemporary cultural “artefacts”, such as artworks, design objects or consumer products.
Shaun is ultimately concerned with the effects that various modes of cultural production have on subjectivity, and the constantly shifting boundaries between subject and object or self and other.
