Using video, photography, performance, drawing and text, Bedwyr Williams combines a strong sense of surrealistic humour with a sharp critical mind.
Exploring notions of what it means to be an artist born and currently working in North Wales, he makes work relevant to a sense of place and belonging. His work has particular resonance in Cornwall given the rural location, language and Cetic connections.
Awarded the prestigous Paul Hamlyn Award for Visual Art in 2004, Williams often draws upon the quirky banalities of his own autobiographical existence to develop his sculptures and performances, merging art and life with a comedic twist that is instantaneously sympahtetic.
