To celebrate 150 years of opening to the public, RAMM commissioned a new work from one of Britain’s most talented contemporary artists.

Bedwyr Williams is an artist, sculptor, writer, film-maker and stand-up comic. He studied at London’s Central St Martin’s School of Art and since graduating his work has been exhibited widely across Britain and Europe. In 2013 he represented Wales at the 55th Venice Biennale and in 2016 he was shortlisted for the prestigious ‘Artes Mundi’ International Art Prize.

Bedwyr works in various media including performance, video, sculpture and text, frequently exploring the friction between the deadly serious and banal aspects of modern life. His practice often satirises the role of the artist and curator by placing them in absurd scenarios. Frequently drawing from his life experiences, Bedwyr’s work offers a critique of our everyday world, while celebrating the obscure.

Bringing his renowned surreal sense of humour to bear, Bedwyr will populate the Queen Street foyer with an array of human faces all found on artefacts in RAMM’s collections. After decades of being examined in glass showcases, the objects will have a chance to get their own back by studying the visitors. Bedwyr will also be creating a video of the faces set within the context of Exeter and the museum’s history.
