Bram Thomas Arnold en Eleanor Wynne Davis (GB)

web Bram Arnold - 4 Reading Poetry to Rocks Bram Thomas Arnold is an artist and writer who started with walking and kept going, into performance, drawing, writing, installation sculpture and film. He studied under Shelley Sacks, herself a pupil of Joseph Beuys at Oxford Brookes University before undertaking a masters degree in Art & Ecology at Dartington College of Arts. He has written for the New Statesman on Art & Ecology, presented projects widely in London and the UK as well as in shows and festivals in New York, Sarajevo, Lithuania and Russia. He is currently studying for a practice-based PhD in the UK, later in the year alongside Sideways Festival he will be showing new work in Georgia, presenting at a conference in Istanbul and undertaking a nomadic residency along the great silk road in Asia.

Eleanor Wynne Davis is an artist and musician with a broad range of experience both nationally and internationally in community based projects. She has specialised in music, environmental projects and overseas development, working extensively with hard to reach communities. Eleanor is interested in the power of actions. Her interest in how the hidden affects the seen makes her look for ways of bringing these connections into the open. She seeks to create situations in which people can engage with new or unfamiliar ideas. Davis has played violin to gorillas, set up walk-in cages as gallery installation, made films of pipes, re-landscaped school play grounds, got people out walking, writing books, making speeches, worked with young kids, excluded from school kids, old folks, teenage mums and dads, the council, schools, the police, other artists and musicians. As part of her ongoing collaboration Davis&Jones in Bristol she is working on a large scale sound installation upon a building site, alongside developing her music practice.
