Ziggy Lever’s work involves making interventions into specific sites and archives. These interventions and responses, in the form of sculpture, sound, and lens-based imagery, playfully investigate the social production of knowledge. Lever considers materials as time-based documents that draw across temporal fields of installation. These come together in sometimes tenuous and provisional arrangements of things: image, intervention, and active research. His work draws on the scientific, cosmological, poetic, and institutional material, through an active researching of sites and (paradigmatic) structures. Unfolding investigations into sites and archives, and in varying cooperative modes of practice, his works relate improvisational making to archival contexts and readings.
