He is currently a production assistant at Artangel and is included in the following forthcoming exhibitions: Nicholas Humphrey, Fontana Gallery, Carrer del Topazi, Barcelona, Spain; The Way Things Were, The Kings Road, Chelsea, London.

Humphrey’s works often come from ideas or proposals by other artists which, for various and varied reasons, have remained unrealised. He does not actively seek out unrealised proposals but becomes aware of them through their status as being collectively known and retold. As a result the proposals he works with inevitably differ from the true original. They are coloured by their many retellings and are filtered through a collective unconscious. What results is not a straight realisation of the original proposal but inevitably a new work.
