ADRIAN DI DUCA
Adrian Di Duca creates work that grapples with notions of the uncanny within the
framework of objects that are mass-produced – whether that be gigantic battery hens, or
carefully crafted replicas of cheap throw away toys. The overwhelming scale and
physicality often giving these objects a dominating and enigmatically sexualised presence.

In recent work Di Duca has given reign to the inherent theatricality of the work and, often
incorporating sound produces work as readily at home in the side-show as the gallery.
Humour and pathos sit with abjection and menace.
