Chimney 2008 (09:10)

Alexander Bates is inspired by the human desire to create order out of disorder. His practice can be seen as both a reflection of this need and also through the use of scale, materials and context in individual pieces, a way of undermining and rebelling against this compulsion. 'Chimney' references both common experience and personal habit ('smoking like a chimney'), which is reiterated by the work's formal qualities such as scale, title and its endless repetition. ©Alexander Bates 2008
