"The Health and Safety Violations"

dorkbot-nyc, 02 September 2009 -- Ben Woodeson: The Health and Safety Violations from dorkbot on Vimeo.

Trained in Glasgow, Scotland, Ben Woodeson now lives in London, England. His practice revolves around absurd and quietly confrontational sculptures; the works set out to challenge the viewer and the exhibiting institution in a playful kind of art chicken. Since December 2008 he has been working on a new series of "deliberately dangerous" works entitled "The Health and Safety Violations" and as part of Location One's Virtual Residency programme he has been collaborating with the artist Ursula Endleicher, they have never met but will spend the last week before the exhibition opens on 9/9 finalizing works together. He has shown throughout Europe, Canada, and America and he has an upcoming solo show at Electrohype in Malmo, Sweden.
