Siân Williams

Siân Williams (b. 1980, UK) works primarily with sculpture, performance, film, and text. Using found or domestic materials and referencing craft techniques such as weaving and crochet, Williams considers ideas around intimacy, proximity, and collective acts, siting her practice at the point between materiality and imagination and the narratives that emerge from there. In 2017 Williams joined Katz Mulk; a collective working at the intersection of music, performance, and visual art who seek to inhabit the marginal spaces in-between improvisation and structure.

Williams completed a BA in Fine Art at Falmouth College of Arts in 2002. In 2015 she graduated with an MA with Distinction from Sheffield Institute of Arts and was awarded the Dianne Willcocks Lifelong Learning Prize. Williams is based in Sheffield and is one of the first cohort of artists on Platform 19, a two year residency at Site Gallery funded through the Freelands Artist Programme.
