Jim Woodall uses a combination of sculpture, video, photography and collage to reflect upon uncertainty within contemporary society. Uncertainty about the buildings we live in, the growth of cities, our connection with nature, our political and belief structures, digital memory, trust, and failure. Woodall’s work is rooted in intervention. From his earlier street based collage works with the group CutUp, to his self-destructing concrete performances, his work responds to the modern urban landscape, demonstrating momentary connections with a person, site or object, which are never quite fulfilled – “pointing towards a condition that stutters under constant doubt and mediation”.
Jim Woodall lives and works in London. Woodall received his MA Sculpture form the Royal College of Arts and his BA (Hons) Graphic Design form Camberwell College of Arts. Recent presentations of his work include: Prevent This Tragedy, Von Goetz Gallery, group show curated by Dateagle, London (2018); The Big Issue, collage commission for The Big Issue, Glastonbury Festival (2017); If I Don’t Have You, Matt’s Gallery, London (2016); and Aggregate, Billboard collage commission and book launch, X-Marks The Bokship, Matt’s Gallery, London (2016).
