Residency Period
Spring 2015

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.
