Sean Edwards’ work investigates the sculptural potential of the everyday, often using remnants of previous activities as a starting point to form an archive of some 600 objects, clippings, drawings and other found or made materials.In many of the works there is a sense of objects being in-progress, indeterminate and open to change; the audience is invited to play a part in their creation. The completion is only ever realised in the exhibition environment to undermine the perception of the gallery as a space for fully achieved artworks.Edwards describes this aspect of his practice as ‘artistic intuition’. Objects are gathered and collected intuitively but are all strongly connected. This exhibition will see him working more closely with the collection, to build up the archive and to create an expanding dialogue around it.
Beginning at Chapter, the exhibition will be shown in a further two venues, during which time it will evolve, shift and change in dialogue with the architecture, history and location of each space: Chapter as a former school; Netwerk, Arles as a former textile factory and Mostyn as a purpose-built picture gallery.
