My practice seeks to embody, in object and sound, a state of transformation that is birthed from symbolic and physical enactments of rupture. Moreover, I think of my artistic work through the lens of an anti-architect whose interest lies in anarchic urban situations and their aesthetic. In the destruction of a fence or hoarding, a petrol bomb to a Belfast peace wall, a brick to a riot shield, a smashed shop window in a protest, these surfaces that are the first to be struck, are the elements that inform my material language.
'Handyman' is a new music performance act by Winter. His track-list is a medley of everyday feelings sung for you, with songs like 'High-street girl', 'Wandering hands' and 'I'm squatting in your condo', Winter will test the acoustic properties of Obrera Centro in February during Zona Maco Art Fair, using a high-energy drumming style alongside some heavy bass and slippery dance moves.
Bio: Winter has been releasing music since the year 2000 when the legendary BBC radio DJ John Peel played Winter's 7" vinyl records as part of Irish instrumental rock band Tracer AMC. Winter has toured the UK, Ireland, Europe and Japan multiple times as well as receiving press in WIRE magazine, NME, Drowned in Sound, Guardian, Irish Times and many more. His more recent electro-punk band Not Squares has played Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds, Latitude, Electric Picnic festivals as well as recording numerous BBC Radio Sessions including a Maidavale studio session for Huw Stephens in 2009.
