RL Wilson responds to particular sites or locations – gleaning social, political, personal, geographical and historical details of a place- to create playful, humorous works. The artist unpicks the landscape and its various visual, verbal, written, and sonic languages via sound, live performance, text, and the moving image. Their process is firmly rooted in ideas of an individual’s experience within specific environments.
For Yorkshire Sculpture International RL Wilson worked with community groups in Leeds to create a site-specific installation exploring the city and its residents.
Yorkshire Sculpture International 2019 had an extensive engagement programme, working with schools, universities, communities and artists.
We explored sculpture with people of all ages, connecting them with the materials and processes used in making sculpture today and showing how sculpture can be found all around us.
