Jarrod Sanderson

Lives and works in London, UK

Sanderson uses various media including digital video, performance, drawing and installation to make work focusing on social relations, desire, cultural difference, language, power and memory. He has an interest in how the political economic structures of late capitalism interact with personal relations, feelings and desires. His work is influenced by his background in visual anthropology and maintains a critical stance towards totalising concepts of culture and society.
