Daniel Mort
British, born 1980

Describing his work as “possible sculpture”, Daniel Mort creates graceful sculptures out of precise combinations of wildly discordant found and handmade objects. No materials are off-limits for Mort, who has incorporated food, a blowtorch, old cassette tapes, and wooden geometric shapes into his works. Like his sculptures, his approach is hybrid, combining modernist attention to formal precision with Neo-Dadaist revelry in the absurd. By pushing materials beyond their ordinary uses, Mort encourages viewers to discover new meanings and surprising beauty in everyday objects.
