visual artist and curator using readily available materials, including corrugated card, coloured paper and electrical goods
AboutSam Aldridge is a visual artist and curator based in Cardiff, Wales. He has previously exhibited across the UK including at National Theatre Wales HQ, Cardiff (2010), GallerA1, Edinburgh (2010), The Lombard Method, Birmingham (2011) and Stapleton Road Tavern, Bristol (2012) and abroad including at Halle 14, Leipzig, Germany (2011) and the Irish Museum of Contemporary Art, Dublin (2010).
He predominantly produces site-responsive sculptural imitations of everyday objects, using readily available materials, including corrugated card, coloured paper and electrical goods. This is done through a process of interacting with the original object, attempting to memorise it, drawing what is remembered and subsequently constructing a version of it from these drawings. The work attempts to explore our relationship with the objects that surround us, investigating their function, and aesthetic. The sculptures are both accessible and interactive, allowing for imaginative play.
