Matt Stokes

Matt Stokes’ work is marked by the study of other people’s culture, by a form of anthropological enquiry that circulates around an interest in events or informal movements that bind people together.

Stokes’ works begin with a research process that immerses him in the social structures of the scene he is working with, which then result in films, installations and event-based works. These works hold collaboration at the centre of both their structure and philosophy, often being made directly with the people from the social group the work celebrates. His films and events can often produce moments of peculiar beauty through the juxtaposition of form and content and from, transporting the intensities of little-known underground scenes into new forms.
