Ben Judd is based in London. His work examines collectivity and participation through performance, moving image and installation, enabling different forms of communities to be explored in relation to site and context. He often works with collaborators as a method to develop self-reflexive folk histories and construct temporary communities.
For his Stanley Picker Fellowship, Judd will collaborate with the transnational EVA Studio (Emergent Vernacular Architecture) to create an offsite project using the nearby River Thames as the site for a floating resource for the local community that reflects upon Britain’s island status.
Judd has exhibited widely in the UK and abroad, recently including ICA, Art Night London, Whitstable Biennale and Victoria Gallery & Museum, University of Liverpool. EVA Studio (Emergent Vernacular Architecture) is a design-based practice based in London and Haiti, which undertakes social projects of different scales and uses, from public spaces, schools, housing to urban design masterplans.
