Josh Wright

Josh Wright (b.1993, High Wycombe) is a London based artist. His creative practice consists of two main outlets: his work as an independent artist, which is predominantly sculptural, and through an on-going collaboration with fellow artist Guillaume Vandame, operating as Wright & Vandame.

 

The sculptures presented in MK Calling form a fragmented figure, alluding to notions of travel within a dream-like landscape. Wright is interested in how space can be transportive and directly shape how someone might encounter his work. He deploys a number of everyday objects such as clothes airers, lamps and bathroom tiles, playfully dissecting and reconfiguring them into something new. He is particularly drawn to these objects to open up wider questions around contemporary domesticity and the role of the home today, but also is interested in escaping or transcending the everyday nature of space.
