6 February: James Richards

James Richards (b.1983, Cardiff, UK) is an artist whose video, sound and curatorial projects examine themes of obsession, desire and technology through the use of archival research, found footage and extensive collaboration.

Rooted in the methodology of montage his work hosts and repurposes visual and sonic material in abstract, sensual and at times violent ways. His compositions are presented in minimalist spacious installations that invites the viewer to engage physically and emotionally with the sensuality of experience.

James Richards lives and works in Berlin and London. Recent solo shows include Speed II (with Leslie Thornton) at Malmö Konsthall, 2019 Kunstlerhaus Stuttgart (With Leslie Thornton) (2018) Kestner Gesellschaft, Hannover (2017), ICA, London (2016), Bergen Kunsthall (2016), Kunstverein München (2015), CCA, Kitakyushu (2012), Chisenhale Gallery, London (2011) and Tate Britain, London (2010). In 2017 Richards represented Wales at the 57th Venice Biennale with his exhibition ‘Music for the Gift’.
