Thom Driver is an artist and musician. His practice converges around several questions: how is language used to perpetuate power structures? How can it be re-imagined as a space of alterity and resistance to these structures? Using sound, video, drawing, text and performance, his work foregrounds emotion, humour and the surreal to get into the cracks in things and explore moments when hidden truths permeate carefully composed façades.
