Tim Sandys

Tim Sandys (b. 1974 in Glasgow, Scotland) associates his work with societal and civic structures. Using actions and interventions, he carefully identifies points of strain, failure or tension within city experience and exploits them. The application of his working methods reflect ethnographic or qualitative research as much as artistic practice and presents without proselytising or conclusion. His output is dominantly sculptural often augmented with film, drawing and sound. He is a graduate of Dundee's Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design and the MFA programme at the Glasgow School of Art.
