Jim Woodall uses a combination of sculpture, video, photography and collage to reflect upon uncertainty within contemporary society. Uncertainty about the buildings we live in, the growth of cities, our connection with nature, our political and belief structures, digital memory, trust, and failure. Woodall’s work is rooted in intervention. From his earlier street-based collage works with the group CutUp, to his self-destructing concrete performances, his work responds to the modern urban landscape, demonstrating momentary connections with a person, site or object, which are never quite fulfilled – “pointing towards a condition that stutters under constant doubt and mediation”.
Jim lives and works in London. He graduated with an MA in Sculpture from Royal College of Art in 2013, having previously completed his BA in Graphic Design at Camberwell College of Arts (2000-2003). Recent exhibitions and projects include: Prevent This Tragedy (Group Exhibition, curated by Dateagle) at Von Goetz Gallery (London, 2018) Auto (Group Exhibition) at Zona Mista (London, 2020), If I Don’t Have You (Solo Exhibition) at Matt’s Gallery (London, 2016)
