The Desk Studies (2020)
The Desk Studies are a series of webcam performances staged behind a desk and conducted by the artist’s alter ego, ‘Mr. Suit’. Through characterisation, Dick chooses to live within a stereotype to subvert its social rule.
The Desk Studies acts as a reaction to our current socio-political climate. This series of 31 performances were conducted throughout January 2020 and cultivating on 31/01/20, the same day as the Brexit withdrawal. Through a variety of repetitive acts or games of endurance, Dick explores ideas of banality and absurdity to question the structures of our complex contemporary world.
