Evan Hutchinson is a lens-based artist with an interest in human social and psychological behaviour and how it interrelates with the idea of role, duty, task and interaction. Incorporating multimedia, Hutchinson explores chance procedures, repetition of tasks with improvised and choreographed performance work. Through video documentation, Hutchinson captures various forms of facilitated experimentations that attempt to question social, mental and emotional behaviour while exploring the human form and its endurance. Showing variety in repetition, Hutchinson deconstructs and reconstructs conventional encounters and social constructs for examination.
