Simon MULLAN 西蒙·玛伦

German b.1981, Kiel, Germany, lives and works in Berlin.

 

The work of Simon Mullan communicates through commonplace domestic materials and shop bought commodities alongside high production video, performance and photography. Infused with an anarchic sense of humour, he consciously collapses concepts of high and low culture in playful and provocative works of art that exist both inside and outside the gallery.
