Nigel Grimmer uses his art practice to explore the relationship between the images we produce of ourselves and the images we see around us, at the cinema, on television or in advertising; and how this relationship affects our sense of identity. Grimmer takes an archive of ephemera from popular culture, such as action figures, dolls and joke shop props and places this into his personal stories.
