Stephen Sutcliffe uses television and sound archives to create layered videos loaded with wry humour and poetry. Referencing cultural icons, particularly ones from the literary and theatrical worlds, the artist addresses ideas of performance and self-doubt. As part of his Talk Show event, Sutcliffe will present excerpts from his own archive of videotapes. The collection has a particular focus on talk shows and interviews, and reflects Sutcliffe's fascination with the construction of public personae.
