To apply send a short statement describing your work, and why you would like to meet Des with 5 low res images, or a link to online material, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Des Hughes’ sculptural practice reconfigures our rapport with the everyday by staging banal ready-mades next to handcrafted replicas of commodities, and three-dimensional caricatures of familiar things.
