edmund law

In the past I have used unconventional materials such as my skin, my sweat, fly wings, live ants, stolen property etc., combining them with hardware into technical and emotional works that are as unusual as they are moving. While there is an element of uncertainty to this use of material, my work is carefully planned (or at least carefully imagined). Much of my practice is site and theme specific sculpture/installation, although I've been known to paint and take pictures. Imitation/forgery/homage, how audiences engage art, galleries themselves and how art activates space or is activated by that space are recent motivations.
