About the artwork
Encompassing performance, sculpture, painting, and video, Bedwyr Williams's practice is characterised by his unique humour and gentle self-depreciation. In this new edition, a metallic gold hand-drawn scroll reads, ‘My heart is in the Mountains My Kidneys are in Rhyl’. Seaside town Rhyl is located in the Wales, and references to the artist’s homeland are frequent throughout his practice. Drawing from his life experiences, Williams' work, on the one hand, offers a sharp critique of our everyday world, and on the other a celebration of the obscure and overlooked.
