Tim Davies

I work in a range of media, exhibiting and making work in Wales, the UK and internationally. The core of my work is time- and site- resposive. My recent practice is exploring the written, spoken and visualised word.

I've always been interested in working with a range of media to develop work using the most appropriate material. This is why it may appear a mixed bag. For instance, recent exhibitions have used projections in one space, museum cabinets in another, found and reconstructed elements on a wall in another space, and so on. I like the idea of mixing things up, where you can play with the senses and encourage the audience to go from one set of experiences and readings to another. A political sensibility, together with an awareness of where and how work is situated, whether for gallery or non-gallery pieces, are at the core of my practice. It's a case of context and flexibility. In 2011 I represented Wales at the Venice Biennale in a solo show. Collections: Arts Council Collection, Hayward Gallery, London; National Museum and Gallery of Wales, Cardiff; Contemporary Art Society of Wales; Harris Museum, Preston; Glynn Vivian Gallery, Swansea; Oriel Mostyn, Llandudno; Poustinia Earth Art Park, Belize
