Shaun Doyle

Born: 1968


Shaun Doyle has worked collaboratively with Mally Mallinson (b.1970) since 2004 producing installation and sculpture. Their work deals directly with political, social and historical issues drawing on an eclectic mix of cultural references. In it, they explore the processes of cultural transformation that take place after an object has served its initial purpose. This re-cycling of forms is a means of distilling useful agents; elements approaching redundancy are stripped down, re-formed and re-packaged. The results challenge the cleaner more commercial concerns of some other art forms and celebrate the possibilities of extreme behaviour and belief.

Doyle and Mallinson have exhibited internationally at institutions including Whitechapel Gallery, London Open 2012 and Tate Britain, Rude Britannia 2010. Solo shows include Galerie Nostheide-Eycke, Germany, The Dog’s Dinner 2013; Venlo Stadhuis, NL Ecce Homo Erectus 2008 and MOT International London, Peristroma Dolorosa 2005. Shortlisted in the Artangel 100 in 2013 and featured on The Culture Show in 2010 for their ‘Fascist Fruit Boys’ in Tate Britain’s Rude Britannia, their work, including earlier solo projects is included in public and private collections including Saatchi Gallery, London and Odapark Centrum voor Hedendaagse Kunst, Venray NL. Doyle and Mallinson are represented by Paul Stolper, London.
