Anthony White is a contemporary visual artist who was born in Australia and is based in Paris. His practice focuses on ideas relating to the phenomenology of empires.
His recent work investigates collision points, shifts and ruptures at the site of geopolitical and cultural boundaries, particularly in relation to global issues of displacement. Echoing Edward Said’s identification of “the inextricable links” between modernism, war and immigration, White’s works are often characterised by an awareness of surface and a preoccupation with physicality and the found object.
