There is a long trajectory in Western art history of the artist as engaged witness, dating back to at least the 15th century but in its more modern sense beginning with Goya. TheÂ works in WITNESS, however, occupy a ‘post-modern’ world and the mass-mediation, mobility and fragmentation of the contemporary world forms a subtext within several of these works.
