About the artwork                         

Edward Thomasson is a multidisciplinary artist whose wide-spanning practice delves into video work, performance art and drawings; mediums through which he investigates performance as a strategy for negotiating everyday life. In this limited edition print, Thomasson has echoed the choreographed actions of a theatrical stage-set, using storytelling to explore personal interactions between heaped individuals.
