SEAN WHITTAKER

Artist working in River Studios


About Sean

Through my idiosyncratic approach to and use of language, objects and actions my practice critically examines the role of aspiration in contemporary culture – particularly the, at times, fraught relationship between notions of failure and success.

Expressed through a variety of media, my work often takes the form of video installation and sculpture, combining elements of both found and made objects and performance.


How will you use your space?

My practice takes a lot of different forms, from photography and video through to performance and installation works – so I need a dedicated space to work through ideas and play around physically and experiment.

Space and light are important to my work, and at River Studios I have that, with the added knowledge that my space is safe and secure and that I am working in a supportive community of other like-minded artists who are happy to discuss ideas and exchange feedback.
