Ed Fornieles

The work of British artist Ed Fornieles examines the habits, rules and protocols of 21st century culture, including the internet, social media, digital economies and sitcom architecture, through which we come to define ourselves and within which our identities are made up and made real. His work comprises installation, sculpture, performance and video, and has been described as “a caricature of digital culture.” In this studio visit, Fornieles will reveal modes of his artistic practice that model our social processes, and the power structures they reproduce.

The “Virtual Artist Studio Visits” series explores the practice of four contemporary artists, using the studio visit as a starting point, and is loosely based around the concept of performing identity: how we frame and are framed by our identity. The series is organised in collaboration with StudioVisit.

Ed Fornieles (b. 1983, UK), lives and works in London. He has exhibited in a wide range of international institutions, including New Museum, New York, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, Zabludowicz Collection, London, 12th Biennale de Lyon, Barbican Art Gallery, London, Chisenhale Gallery, London, Serpentine Gallery, London, ZKM, Karlsruhe Germany, Carlos/Ishikawa, London, and Carl Kostyal, Stockholm. He gained his MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art, London, and his BA in Fine Art at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, Oxford University.
