Toby Christian’s episodic practice incorporates a wide range of media where works stem from his ongoing, experimental writing. Re-prototyped forms for living and working, plans and models for imagined places, palimpsest-records of objects and bodies and contorting typographical characters constellate around his written accounts, where a near-forensic voice is teems with feral poetics.
