Sean Edwards Residency, Chapter Stiwdio Annexe
Working with a range of artistic interventions and situations, including site-specific installation, video, three-dimensional photocopies and the readymade, Sean Edwards’ sculptures set up situations that lead you to examine your viewing habits.
Through a formal analysis of both the real and the fake, often employing a notion of absurdity in the process, Edwards aims to expose the machinery of our take on reality and to lay bare an object’s function and use value.
Edwards will be in residence in the Chapter Stiwdio for three weeks followed by a one-week public exhibition that marks the culmination of this period of reflection and production.
