Pérez Evans’s artworks are usually associated with questions around sculpture, rurality and conditions of the South.
Reviving shame from queer and rural communities, Evans entangles objects back to the people and lands that made them. Working as a kind of gardener and following agricultural protesters, Evans transplants, dumps and spills plants and foodstuffs into public and institutional spaces.
Drawing out evocative installations which are often charged with queer and rural anger and hope, familiar materials are employed to disorientate. At times scaled up loosing they’re docility and becoming monumental, other times stripping things down, reducing manmade readymades into bare forms which are tied back into the natural.
