Biography

Ben Cullen Williams (b.1988, UK) is a British artist whose practice consists of sculptures, installations, photography, video and collaborative projects. In his work he explores mankind’s relationship to the world in a rapidly changing environment, focusing on issues such as liminality, the global, local and personal, and the Anthropocene. He investigates how related spatial typologies can be understood as a physical manifestation of the human condition. He draws on a range of fabrication processes, whether physical or digital, to understand our phenomenological relationship to the material world in an unsettled age. His work has been shown internationally in a range of spaces, galleries and environments and has featured in collaborations in a range of different disciplines and fields. His work operates on a range of scales, from human-sized to those of architectural proportions. Ben lives and works between London and New York.
