Fred Nicholas

Fred Nicholas is a video and performance artist; he makes films, live performance and interactive relational works. Fred investigates a relationship between performance and video; transposing live acts through the construction of film. Some are about creating narratives, taking on or portraying characters or different male personas. Others are about seeing what video can capture; scrutinising its relationship to the live and visceral experience of life.

He considers forms of theatre and cinema, video and TV; and seeks to understand the techniques they employ, the presumptions of the mediums and the realities they portray. Deeply concerned with notions of truth and fiction; of the stories we tell and roles they play, the resulting works form the continual and evolving narrative of this exploration.

Fred's work is both playfully absurd and a sincere contemplation of place, identity and the promise of change.
