Nathaniel Mellors creates films that spill into the gallery in the form of animatronic sculptures and installations. He draws his subjects from television culture, providing viewers with immersive environments filled with options for entertainment—based on game shows, sitcoms, nature programs, melodramas, and even snuff films. Mellors blends together the familiar and the absurd to create narratives that unravel over time, incorporating elements of satire and the grotesque. He writes and edits the scripts and music for his episodic absurdist films, finding influences in mainstream entertainment, but also in meditation, UFOs, and artists such as Jean-Luc Godard, Pier Paolo Pasolini, and the avant-garde music and art collective Throbbing Gristle.
