EyUp_Ep37 Michael Burkitt - Harry Meadley
00:00 / 00:00

b.1985.

Michael Burkitt lives and works in the industrial garden town of Scunthorpe in the United Kingdom. 

Michael is an optimist. This creates lots of room for romance, failure, repetition, labour, humour, love and institutional critique in his artwork.

 

Context-specific or site-responsive: he intends to make meaningful connections with audiences or individuals with ideas, objects, images, sounds and performances.
