Lewis Prosser (b. 1992 Bristol, England) now living and working in Glasgow, Scotland. Prosser is currently a programme coordinator at The Art School in Glasgow and works as a performer and curator in his “spare time”.

Say What I Am Called
Say What I Am Called takes inspiration from the riddling culture of the Middle Ages to re-engage our delight in paradox, inversion and the unexpected.
At a time when boundaries are either being created or reinforced it seems more relevant than ever to parody and subvert systems of control. Come and navigate an interactive sculpture garden dominated by large obstacles and carefully crafted moments of intimacy: oil paintings encased within aluminium structures; screen-printed banners adorning the walls, ceramic mementos amidst the debris and digital avatars will guide you on your journey.
