Biography




David Cotterrell is an installation artist working across media and technologies to explore the social and political tendencies of a world at once shared and divided.

The practice is typified by an interest in intersection: whether fleeting encounter or heavily orchestrated event, Cotterrell’s works explore the human condition and the breaks or nuances that can lead to a less ambiguous understanding of the world they inhabit.

Encapsulating the roles of programmer, producer and director, Cotterrell works to develop projects that can embrace the quiet spaces that are the sites for action, which might (or might not) be clearly understood in the future.

Cotterrell’s work has been commissioned and shown extensively in Europe, the United States and Asia. He is Professor of Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University and is represented by Danielle Arnaud.
