Edward Clydesdale Thomson

Edward Clydesdale Thomson (1982) is a Scottish/Danish artist based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. His practice addresses contemporary conflicts of time by rethinking and reshaping the space and conditions of his artistic production along durational lines. His work is often concerned with the places and objects on the margins - physically, socially or symbolically - of outside and inside, of wild and tamed landscapes, of decoration or function. Be that a patterned fabric, a window blind, a gate, a washing line, a garden, or a sense of identity.

He has exhibited at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, and the Malmo Konstmuseum, Malmo. He is a graduate of the MFA program at the Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam and the BArch program at the Glasgow school of Art. He was resident at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam (2011–12). In 2011 he was awarded the Lecturis Award and nominated for the Prix de Rome. Notable solo shows include "causa finalis" (2012), Galerie Fons Welters, Amsterdam, "wild care, tame neglect’ Frankendael Foundation, Amsterdam and ‘Nothin Shakin but the Leaves on the Trees’ Marabouparken konsthall, Stockholm.
