Workplace is pleased to announce the representation of British artist Hazel Brill.

Brill works across film, sound, animation, text, sculpture, and installation, conjuring a shiny utopian future which has turned messy and grotesque. Inspired by intricate set designs and depictions of laboratories from horror films, the artist is interested in gothic horror fiction as a device to deal with fears around transformative technologies, where the lines between the living and the non-living are blurred, posing an existential threat.

Brill's research spans multiple subjects, stretching from 17th century machines for spiritual experiences, and early forms of coding, to contemporary practices within pharmaceutical industries.
