Andrew Dodds is a Belfast-born artist currently based in London. He is particularly noted for his collaborative works exploring our historical, social and political relationship with 'nature', the voice and the shared potentialities of public space. He consistently engages and acknowledges others in the imagining, production and reception of his artwork, often questioning received structures and certainties within and beyond the art arena.
Dodds has a Masters in Fine Art from the Slade School of Art and has received awards from the British Council, Arts Council England and University College London, among others. Reviews of his artwork have recently featured in The Sunday Times, The Observer, Circa, The Irish Times and Art & Architecture Journal.
Dodds has exhibited in major public and private galleries throughout the UK and internationally including: Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, Spacex Gallery, Exeter, Barbican Centre, London; Azad Art Gallery, Tehran, Gallery 400, Chicago; Jeffrey Charles Gallery, London, Collective Gallery, Edinburgh. His work in the public realm includes 'Wunderkammer', Airfield Trust, Dublin, 'Arcade' (arcade-project.com), London, 'Grain' (grain244.co.uk), Kent and 'The Deceleration Project', London. The publication, Lost in Space (Book Works, 2006), documenting the artist's search for the objects left behind on the surface of the moon after the first lunar landing, is distributed and collected internationally.
