Patrick Lowry’s installations examine our relationship with objects and places. Through them, he explores various forms of economic, political and cultural hierarchies. Using processes of replication and displacement, Lowry interrogates the aspects of our made environment that help construct or maintain these hierarchies and our submissive or controlled positions of user or consumer. His work stimulates the viewer to consider the subject that is being represented, and how this subject and/or its relationship to both its physical and wider social environment might be interpreted, and what it might imply.
