Tim Bromage


Tim Bromage’s work draws upon his interests in stage magic and folk traditions. Props and costume are combined with song, text and other activities to create strange rituals. Placed within this context the magical effect becomes a mode of symbolic demonstration, creating narratives that often reference cultural myths and histories of the places that the artists has lived. Alluding to his personal experience, these performances are an ongoing exploration of fact and fiction, the humour present within these experiences, and the dualism present within the human condition.
