Simon Liddiment

Born in 1964 - United Kingdom


Simon Liddiment was born in Norfolk in 1964, studied in London at Goldsmiths College, and is now based in Norwich.

His practice is located somewhere in the stand off between words and objects, in the visual and verbal slippages that occur between what may be spoken or written, and the physical matter of the world.

His work is epigrammatic in the best sense of the word - concise, paradoxical and witty - revealing an attempt to understand something and share his findings. It is about identifying an appropriate form for the observation. It is somehow about containment. How it all fits together remains important, the shape of the idea, the shape of the material it's made of, the shape of the "thing".
