james capper: creatures with mechanical claws.

mes capper creates large sculptural works which take on forms that resemble industrial tools and machinery, from hydraulic pumps, tractor blades to cutting claws and spindles of a milling machine. his purpose? to generate new functions for already familiar objects–in this case the mechanical apparatuses are paired with large blocks of plaster which the british artist ‘attacks’ with his conceived devices, considering them much like ‘drawing machines’ which he uses to carve and make markings on the white chunks of material. here, the performative aspect of the work becomes just as important as the tools themselves.
