Glen Ogden is a British multi-disciplinary artist based in Leeds. He studied (BA) Fine Art at Leeds Arts University.
His Work originates from the role of the worker in historic and contemporary society through a range of satire performances and material interactions.
"I have a socially engaged practice that explores the role of the worker 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.
I explore social and political theory whilst conducting an investigation into behavioural economics; to pose questions of whether money is and should be our only motivation in the workplace?
