Born 1978 in the UK and lives in Berlin, Germany. Samuel Dowd’s work incorporates sculpture, film, collage, photography and experimental writing. The films are predominantly closely observed non-narrative portraits of singular dwellings, landscapes and their inhabitants; enigmatic, intimate encounters with exhaustively nuanced spaces, forms, subjects and structures. He engages with furnishings, objects, architecture and language as manifestations of thought, of being-in-common. In recent years Dowd has pursued several exemplary strands of Gesamtkunstwerk – focusing on those who have taken avant-garde activity into the realm of the domestic and explored radical ways of living and making as the total work of art.
