Through solo and collaborative works, Jordan Azcune’s practice develops from the act of playing. This artistic practice appropriates quotidian materials in order to communicate a joking and formal intersection between contemporary art and architecture. Azcune utilises colour, kinetics, and improvisation in a playful yet technically sophisticated manner to respond critically yet humorously to failed 20th century ideals of Utopianism and optimism.
Graduating from Queensland University of Technology with Honours in 2016 Azcune has since been working along with public artists including an ongoing mentorship with artist Lincoln Austin. Nationally, his work has been exhibited in a range of artist run spaces, festivals, and galleries including; Cut thumb ARI, Inresidence, Swell Sculpture, Perth Institute of Contemporary Art (PICA) and Redlands Regional Art Gallery.
