Multidisciplinary artist William Farr works with found objects, both natural and manmade, on sculptures, sets and installations, which – although shifting in scale and materials – have a constant thread of controlled chaos. He allows chance encounters and plant lifespans to lead his process. In his installations, each element is abstracted from its original form and purpose – there are empty bottles of Cherry B, neon bulbs, plug sockets, plastic tubing, chicken wire, rocks, leaves, branches and flowers – wrapped around each other, suspended and occasionally set on fire.
Having studied fashion design, William has since worked with Liberty, Selfridges and Tate Modern, designers Charles Jeffrey, Dilara Findikoglu and Matty Bovan, and has been featured by i-D, ES Magazine, The Sunday Times Style and Love magazine. All alongside working on personal projects including publications and artworks, and a collaborative photography project, Gathers Together, which is focused on foraged flowers.
