We are thrilled to introduce our new residency artist Tim Woodward from Australia, he will stay with us from October to December.
Working across mediums with a strong focus on sculpture, Tim’s practice explores the concept of an ‘aspirational body’, a body manoeuvring the service economies and material cultures of our time. Through the production of video artworks and assemblage sculpture, his work uncovers new ways of thinking through objects and their requisite economies of use, movement, service and exchange.

During his residency at Institute For Provocation, Tim is interested in the post-socialist allegories of aspirationalism in China, and the rapid rise of the on-demand economy in Beijing. Building on recent exhibitions, at IFP Tim will develop new sculptures from polyester felt acoustic panel, developing recent wall works into new three dimensional and architectural forms. He will also extend on a series of recent video works that feature resting food couriers.
