PROFILE: Grenville Davey, Artist-in-Residence

Grenville Davey (born 28 April 1961) is an English sculptor and winner of the 1992 Turner Prize.

Davey is a visiting professor of the University of the Arts London and programme leader, MA Fine Art at the University of East London. He was the artist-in-residence for the duration of the programme Mathematics and Applications of Branes in String and M-theory from January to June 2012, working with Dr David Berman, one of the programme organisers.

Grenville Davey's sculptural work has long been concerned with relationships, familial resemblances and pairs. Through his previous residency at Queen Mary, University of London, his recent work has continued along those lines, but is now inspired by notions in T-duality and mirror symmetry in string theory where there are surprising pairings of objects.
