Teasing out the subplots and maneuvers permeating cultural production, Chris Evans operates through fronts of affiliations and loose collaborations evading decisive definitions of author- or ownership. Evans has incited diplomats to work as draftsmen, police to recruit art students, and a commercial sponsor to create a luxury adornment as an exhibit. Thriving in nebulous environments where private or corporate patronage crosses the arts, the artist persistently laces this badland with poetic notes beyond political motivation. Evans’s practice filters clouded backstories, social processes, or institutional visions into a single object or gesture—a part for a whole—whilst producing spiraling narratives that simultaneously echo and pervert. At PRAXES, Evans’s Cycle unfolds in four modules entitled Hat, Hat, Hat, and Uniform.
