Sam Venables

More often than not a sculptor, Sam Venables makes artwork about fandom, advertising and ideas around what makes something feel ‘local’ to a place. The photographs she takes informs her installations.

The things we choose to discard and the items we cherish form a personal narrative. Sam Venables’ work Bonanza considers the street as a space of refuse and discovery; the photographs of streets become part of a wider story about what and why we collect the things we do and how they come together to build a story around particular cities.
