George Eksts is a London based artist using animation, photography, drawing and sculpture to explore ideas of progress, potential and completion.
He uses a combination of digital and analog processes, often moving back and forth between the two. Open-source found digital models might be projected onto a wall to create a large-scale drawing in ribbon, which could then be subjected to physical forces, captured photographically and finally rendered as an animation. His exhibitions often combine tangible objects in a physical space with temporary online projects. In 2018 Eksts set up Slow Install, an online collaborative project space that has no physical or commercial aspect, showing both real and propositional artworks by contemporary and historical artists.
George studied at Falmouth College of Art and Royal College of Art, and has participated in residencies at Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris and Bemis Center, Omaha. He was Digital Print Fellow at Royal Academy Schools from 2011-13. He has exhibited in group exhibitions at New Contemporaries (ICA London and Liverpool Biennial), London Open at Whitechapel, and solo exhibitions at Hayward Gallery Concrete, Toulouse Espace Ecureuil, University of Herts, Mansions of the Future, Sidney Cooper Gallery and Tintype London.
