Jonathan Wright makes sculpture, installations and drawings, he observes and subverts functional structures that support and service our everyday lives. A pylon, a water tower, a fence and a ridged hull inflatable boat (Rhib). Transport, communication, transmission and survival are subject matter. Jonathan uses scale jumps and fetishized material selection to investigate and subvert the ‘everyday’ engineering that we take for granted. Question the Rhib for example; hanging here limp and deflated, a transport traditionally used for emergency services in city rivers or short taxi crossings from a luxury yacht to the shore, now synonymous with the exodus of Syrian human traffic. Or question; Wright’s water tower, flaccid, slumped and yielding is both a surrealist trope, like Man Ray’s Cadeau, (an iron with a line of fourteen nails) and a reflection on the different value of water in different societies.
