George Avill

My practice is an investigation into the lack of effective inclusivity in the Queer community but mostly it is 'an exercise in poor taste'.

I like to invite people to put their feet up in kitschy living rooms I have fabricated but then their feet fall through the poof because it’s made out of old banana boxes and doyleys and I’m making them watch my friend eating a trifle with their bare hands as their clown nose falls into the custard.

When people ask what I think my best quality is I always say ‘I try really hard! I’m

not the best but I try the most!’ which didn’t make me very popular from the ages of 12 to 17. Now I am a whole adult person it has reaped more substantial benefits; I have worked for Arnolfini Archive’s, Broadbent Gallery, Vidal Sassoon in their 2020.2 collection and HUF magazine.
