Carl Slater’s work uses sculpture, collage and video to re-present loaded materials in new configurations. Sourcing fragments from private and cultural archives Slater tackles difficult or sensitive content; layering and reordering to create new meaning. His formal approach to object and image draws on ideas of minimalism and allows space for the charge within historic artifacts to resonate.
