EACHWHAT INDUSTRIES (°1964, London, UK) is Paul Hawkins / Bob Modem

EACHWHAT make visual-art & performance(s), solo or in collaboration

EACHWHAT  publish mostly future-facing books via Hesterglock Press

EACHWHAT works by putting the viewer on the wrong track, in which the actual event still has to take place or has just ended; the memory of an event that will never take place

By investigating or ignoring language, EACHWHAT often creates several practically identical works, upon which thoughts that have apparently just been developed are manifested: notes are made and then crossed out again, ‘mistakes’ are repeated
EACHWHAT works focus on the inability of communication which is used to visualise reality, the attempt of dialogue, the dissonance between form and content and the dysfunctions of language

EACHWHAT works question the conditions of appearance of an image in the context of contemporary visual culture in which images, representations & ideas normally function

EACHWHAT works are given improper functions

EW Ind. realise that anarchy mostly works best

EACHWHAT currently lives and works in Bristol

EACHWHAT recommend you work at your ALIENISM
