About Glen Ogden
Glen Ogden is a Leeds based artist in the UK. He recently graduated from Leeds Arts University with a BA in Fine Art amidst the pandemic. He works from his studio at Assembly House in Armley where he creates labour intensive durational performances; fuelled by satire, repetitive and futile actions. Each linked through a fictional narrative. He creates sculpture as a condensed method to explore his own experiences and thoughts around the worker.
He explores social and political theory whilst conducting investigations into behavioural economics; to pose questions of whether money is, and should be, our only motivation in the workplace.
I have a socially engaged practice that explores the role of the working man in historic and contemporary society, through performance and film – imbued with a sculptural understanding of space, time and locality. I seek to emphasise the work, rest, work, rest mantra of our time, through repetitive and cyclical structures that evidence the physical manifestation of humans as tools.
