Edward Bruce’s multidisciplinary artistic practice involves codes and languages clashing or overlaying, opening up new possibilities of living together.
About me and my work
I’m an artist who works collaboratively and individually with sound, print and performance. In my work I explore the group state of mind. I am interested in the codes of behaviour we use to communicate and how these are employed in negotiation between opposing sides by placing counterparts in a shared space or ‘playing field’ where they are free to form cross-pollinated creativity.
Many of my subjects are the group games, rituals and pastimes I remember from growing up and I am interested in how they may still retain their relevance in a world of overlapping cultures and viewpoints. In my work I try to discover a shared value for the present day.
