Writer and critic Jan Verwoert has frequently written on the work of Geoffrey Farmer, most recently contributing an essay to the catalogue for Let’s Make the Water Turn Black. In this talk Verwoert peels back the many layers of Farmer’s 'sculpture play', questioning the role of the audience and the presence of material animism in the work.
