John Wood & Paul Harrison


Bristol Museum and Art Gallery is working with performance and video artists John Wood and Paul Harrison to develop a new video work inspired by Bristol’s Designated collection of Geology. The work will draw upon the history of geological maps, walkers and individual geologists whose histories are tied up with the collection at the museum.

The video will be on show at the museum in September 2015.

John Wood and Paul Harrison explore the physical and psychological parameters of the world around them through a series of immaculately constructed video works, informative and uninformative text pieces, drawings, doodles and half thoughts, and quite useful sculptures. As trust and support, and cause and effect are played out through simple material and conceptual gestures, the artists question and ultimately affirm a human position in the world that is essentially positive.
