FEATURED ARTIST: Gareth Long, Work in Progress, 2010. Video 5:12 / Animated GIF.
Work in Progress (2010) was made as part of a suite of works foregrounding the mechanisms of artistic production. A looped depiction of the cartoon character Daffy Duck, seemingly locked in the throes of ‘writer’s block’, it points with humour to the sincerity and anguish of the creative process. - G. L.
