The epic and sublime are central to William Mackrell’s practice. His desire to challenge and struggle against his own endurance creates an unraveling process, which becomes itself the content.
By using repetitive strategies in his actions, he measures the physicality of his presence and considers how the extraordinary can stem from these accumulative endeavors.
Venturing between the plausible and the absurd, he stretches metaphorical actions to breaking point. Often humour arises through his encounter with the absurd.
