Jack Catling

Charlatanism, illusion, and shamanism


Catling’s work is mainly centered around performance and installation. It represents an intervention into the social codes of the viewer through various combinations of the ceremonial, stage illusion, and the everyday. the work is aimed at invoking mystery, and allowing the viewer a moment of wonder.
