About Juneau Projects
Juneau Projects was formed in 2001 by Philip Duckworth and Ben Sadler. We work across a broad range of media including painting, sculpture, animation, performance, music and installation. Much of our work is made in collaboration with other people and focuses on the relationship between society, culture and the natural world. We are interested in how nature is perceived through the lens of technology, folk art and other cultural mediation. Throughout our career we have examined the process of working in a hands-on way with technology to produce artworks, projects and collaborations. In tandem with this, we are fascinated by the increasingly rapid obsolescence of technology and the impact of this phenomenon upon the objects that artists make. Recent work has developed from an interest in technological folklore, science fiction narratives and artistic collaboration with groups of people who do not consider themselves to be creative.
We have exhibited at venues including Tate Britain (London), PS1 (USA), Frankfurter Kunstverein (Frankfurt), Grizedale Arts (Cumbria), IKON (Birmingham), Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale (Japan), Tatton Park Biennial (UK), Somerset House - Kings Cultural Institute/Up Projects (London), Lismore Castle Arts (Ireland) and Two Chairs, Vermont (USA).
Our work is in collections including the Zabludowicz Collection, KPN and New Art Gallery Walsall.
