• Angus Fairhurst/Caroline Caley

    Karsten Schubert Ltd.

    Angus Fairhurst revels in disjointed humor which he has compared to the move of the knight on the chessboard: bound by rules like all the other pieces but free to strike out in different directions. In failing to live up to expectations without entirely confounding them, such punning is moral not in the prescriptive sense of defining right and wrong, but more fundamentally. In Fairhurst’s words: “A so-called animal battle against the inhuman structures of over-civilization is very moral, in the sense that it’s done for the love of something.”
