Mandy Wax

I am a contemporary artist living and working in London. I am both a maker and facilitator, telling human stories and working with others in both collaborative and community settings.  I make dynamic wall hung pieces and haunting installations using a variety of art forms including textiles, painting, collage and photography. My style of working reflects my background in philosophy and psychoanalysis and my pieces are often the result of research and observations into the human psyche.

Most recently I am concerned with how traces of the past can haunt the present and how buried matter or forces can emerge and affect our lives and relationships. I am especially interested in the practice of repetition and how the experiences from one time and place are passed on to another. My work invites questions about transforming personal narrative and challenges ideas of truth through the act of selection, creation and re-creation.
