Kevin Hunt (born in 1983) is an artist, curator and writer based in Liverpool where he is also
a director of The Royal Standard.
He makes sculpture using found, redundant objects, particularly furniture which is
reconfigured into something new. The objects used are often rendered functionless by the act
of beautification or their function is shifted in some way, eradicating any original purpose
whilst exposing an inherent aesthetic that has always lay within. By irreversibly altering these
things and simultaneously raising their status, the work attempts to question what it is to be
an object in the world and how these objects come to exist as sculpture.
The act of making, although premeditated, regularly turns out to be more casual, allowing for
serendipitous and chance happenings. The resultant sculpture hovers in abeyance, ready to
break, morph or somehow change further, often having no definite end point by existing as
brittle, precarious, visually unstable or inherently flawed structures that in some way have the
ability to continue to evolve after they have been realised, something which is an enduring
concern within his practice.
Recent exhibitions include Built Overnight (curated by Rhubaba) as part of The Annuale,
Edinburgh (2010), Global Studio at The Bluecoat, Liverpool (2010), NO SOUL FOR SALE at
Tate Modern, London (2010), Honk Kong ArtWalk within the public realm of Hong Kong
(2010), Arctic Fox at Vulepes Vulpes, London (2009) and Trade City, Contemporary Art
Manchester at the CHIPS Building, Manchester (2009).
Kevin also participated in Rendez-Vous 09, at the Institut d’art Contemporain, during the Xth
Biennale de Lyon, Lyon in 2009.
