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.
I explore the break-down of the group state of mind of opposing sides and the new forms created in the process. I am interested in the codes of behaviour we use to communicate and how these are employed in negotiation by placing counterparts in a shared space, where they are free to form cross-pollinated creativity. 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, discovering a shared value for today’s world.
