STEAMmates: MEET – Jonny Briggs

Jonny Briggs is an artist who produces work that aims to think outside of reality.

“ I use photography to explore my relationship with deception, the constructed reality of the family, and question the boundaries between my parents and I, between child/adult, self/other, nature/culture, real/fake in attempt to revive my unconditioned self, beyond the family bubble.”

“Through STEAMhouse I’ll be expanding the use of sculpture in my practice, making masks of my parents, that close around different parts of my body, pushing them into different positions. These will be used for photographs and will show alongside them. My practice, in a nutshell, looks at the constructed reality of the family, through the constructed reality of photography.”


Some of Jonny’s latest pieces include;

The Same You Two near identical photographs of artist\’s father perched upon a fragment of wooden mirror stand, with artist\’s mother\’s teeth cut into it. — 2019.
