John Wood and Paul Harrison make things that move and things that don’t, things that are flat and things that are not, things that are mildly amusing and things that are definitely not.
They make works that form a kind of reference manual for how to do, make, build or draw things that you probably never want to do, make, build or draw. They do it for you. Even though you don’t need them to.
This attempt to compile an encyclopaedia of the largely useless, started in 1993 after they met at art college. They live and work in Bristol and Liverpool.
Wood and Harrison’s work has been shown extensively, with museum shows in North and South America, Europe and Japan. Their work is in public collections including; MoMA, New York; Tate, London; Pompidou, Paris; MUDAM, Luxembourg; Albertina museum, Vienna; British council collection; Arts Council Collection; Government Art Collection. They are represented by galleries in Lisbon, Basel, Naples and New York.
