David Bellingham a statement in words that could almost be his own David Bellingham makes things to hang on the wall, things to sit on the floor and things to place on the table. Things that look like themselves rather than things that look like other things. Things to pick up and things to put down. Things to hold on to and things to give away. Things to keep inside and things to leave outside. Things to remember and things to forget. Pictures and objects as means, ends and beginnings.

Printed works and editions appear through the imprint WAX366. Bellingham was born in South London and lives and works in Glasgow and Copenhagen.
