Artist Profile: Ed Wiffen

Ed Wiffen

Permanent working location:

Working practice:
My work develops, trying to materialise sculpture through performance. Fluctuating between a morose interest in apocalypse, transcendence, and a culture grown from hollywood and materiality my work attempts to straddle these subjects without any singular process of making. In recent work I have used composite photography, costume making, video, performance and usually lots of soil and organic matter.

Mill24 Exhibition:
My proposed performance is based on the process of enculturation, when we develop our behaviour based on social conforms. This process has always had a bastardised appearance in literature and films with the image of the 'feral child' constantly re-occurring. The feral child's behaviour has developed either in solitude or around a matriarchal animal, traditionally a wolf or gazelle. My performance for Mill24 will demonstrate the introduction of a feral being into a representation of British society through material possessions and artefacts.

Mill24 exhibition Date:
