Joshua Woolford

This exploration has largely influenced their areas of work and study. Holding an MA in Contemporary Art Practice from the Royal College of Art, London 2022; and BA (Cum Laude) in Media and Culture from the Design Academy Eindhoven, 2016.

 

THE ARTIST

Bound

Joshua Woolford is a transdisciplinary artist in that the outcomes are largely an intuitive reaction to my experiences - rather than pre-formulated expressions within certain mediums.  Joshua works between digital and print- and media, performance, sculpture, sound, installation and painting.

STUDY 01

In this way Joshua's practice pushes themself to experience the world from different perspectives which tend to at once overlap, interweave, complement and contradict each other have exhibited / performed at the Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven, Habait theatre Tel Aviv, Gallerie V Cambridge, The Factory Project, HOMEby Ronan Mckenzie, Harlesdon High School, Soho House and Reference Point in London.

Woolford’s work largely explores and critiques shared experiences of contemporary (sub) culture(s). Identity, belonging and freedom are concepts which heavily inspire the outcomes of their work, ultimately leading them to uncover and address opposing themes of rejection, detachment and disorientation.

 

Woolford’s articulation process acts as a conversation; sometimes between them and themself, but mostly between the many versions of their portrayed selves and the people surrounding them.
