Attorney and Therapist in Gurdaspur, India
David Harry (°1983, Gurdaspur, India) creates performances, sculptures, installations and mixed media artworks. In a search for new methods to ‘read the city’, Harry absorbs the tradition of remembrance art into daily practice. This personal follow-up and revival of a past tradition is important as an act of meditation.
His performances are often about contact with architecture and basic living elements. Energy (heat, light, water), space and landscape are examined in less obvious ways and sometimes developed in absurd ways. By applying a poetic and often metaphorical language, he focuses on the idea of ‘public space’ and more specifically on spaces where anyone can do anything at any given moment: the non-private space, the non-privately owned space, space that is economically uninteresting.
