Sol Bailey Barker

Sol Bailey-Barker is a British multi-disciplinary artist working primarily with sculpture, sound and performance. Informed by the development of technologies that were for millennia seen as shamanic for their transformative power upon the landscape and their influence over life and death, Bailey-Barker's practice follows this journey of body-hacking and augmentation from the ancient sacred axe to contemporary prosthetics and machinery. Working with found objects, building immersive environments which combine the constructed with the found, he explores the uncertainty of history, revisiting narratives from a parallel non-colonial perspective.
