Mellors, Nathaniel

Hippy Dialectics

Nathaniel Mellors makes satirical video, performance and sculptural works, which often involve absurd, amusing narratives. His ongoing video series Ourhouse (2010- ) is a mash-up of TV drama and situation comedy, set in a bohemian mansion in the English countryside. The series stars the Maddox-Wilson family and their peculiar visitor, The Object, who appears suddenly and begins to eat and regurgitate the books in the family library. The books that the object consumes exert a strange influence over the story, affecting both the family’s language and actions.
