David Attwood

David Attwood (1990; based in Naarm/Melbourne) makes work in the form of readymades, found objects and sculptural assemblages using popular products and branded materials. Drawing from the meanings and values transmitted by merchandised objects, his work aims to unpack the influences of consumer culture on the ways we live our lives. In 2016 Attwood completed a PhD in Art at Curtin University, and in 2019 completed the SOMA Summer program, SOMA, Mexico City. He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally in commercial, institutional, artist run, online and offsite settings. Attwood is the co-editor of the book The Art of Laziness: Contemporary Art and Post-work Politics (Art + Australia, 2020) and runs the project space Disneyland Paris.
