Australian artist Matthew Sleeth seeks to draw attention to how signs “program” us to behave in a prescribed manner. By adopting their form and aesthetic while misappropriating their ideology, Sleeth has constructed a series of sculptural works that question the dogma of a politically correct society.  In Rules to Live By, the artist suggests we delve beyond superficiality for a deeper meaning in life. The texts featured in these works will be sourced from a combination of found, combined, appropriated or completely invented signs or instructions.
