About

Through solo and collaborative practices, Jordan Azcune explores the idea of child’s play through a contemporary understanding of art and appropriation. Azcune takes a lighthearted approach to art making, often working with collaborators to make work revolving around games and the process of play. This allows the work to reveal a sense of humour, excitement, and tension to its viewers. Described as ‘lop sided landmarks’ Azcune’s work frequently returns to ideas of fragility, the quotidian, and larger ideas of optimism (Utopia).

Azcune lives and works in Brisbane. In 2016 he completed Honours in Fine Art at Queensland University of Technology and have exhibited in several local ARIs, group shows, and solo shows.
