Stephen Willats has made work examining the function and meaning of art in society since the 1960s. His work has involved interdisciplinary processes and theory from sociology, systems analysis, cybernetics, semiotics and philosophy. This manifests in wall installations, project works, films & computer simulations, drawings & diagrams, bookworks and texts.
Produced on the occasion of the exhibition Representing the Possible at Victoria Miro, London, in spring 2014. Representing the Possible brings together previously unseen works on paper from the 1960s and the present day in a specially conceived installation. Comprising four large-scale site-specific wall drawings, the installation transformed the gallery’s architecture into an immersive drawn environment with 37 individual works on their surfaces.
