Mike Ricketts

Mike Ricketts work continually invokes the bureaucratic and intellectual structures of architecture, urban planning and policy as both subject and location for his work, but presents this context as a site populated by talisman-like objects and small rebellions as much as regulation and rules.

Concerned with specific spaces and histories, Mike Ricketts develops projects that explore the uncertainties and paradoxes of contemporary public space. By asking questions, following unlikely leads and making propositions, Ricketts often runs into bureaucratic structures such as those associated with urban regulation and planning. The day-to-day operation of such structures, both at their fringes and in everyday scenarios, forms the subject and location of his work.
