Dan Walwin

Dan Walwin (b. 1986 in Frome, UK) lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.   Their works concentrate on harnessing and channelling observed visceral qualities, often seemingly drawn to sensations that particular forms of “containment” produce. They pay close attention to movements of subjects, (also often being the embodied camera itself), swaying between the erratic and the hypnotic, and directly employing those remnants of the perverse process of containment.
