Cactus is hosting the latest solo exhibition from artist Doug Bowen, titled Down in the Dumps and running at the Liverpool location from August 15 until September 13, with a private viewing on August 14.
Bowen, born in York and now living in Leeds, works in a variety of media, employing a kind of ‘case by case’ aesthetic with a variety of techniques for which ideas are the primary and aesthetics the secondary component. In his interview with Young Artists in Conversation (YAC), Bowen states: “They are made of the certain materials and look that particular way so they convey the idea.”
Previous shows include You think the only people who are people… at Two Queens, Cheese at Toast, £1 FISH at S1 Artspace, ex at blip blip blip, and COMBINE #6 at Model, and previous residencies include those at The Hepworth Wakefield, Bloc Projects, The Good Hatchery, SPUR, and Desktop Residency.
