Michael Cousin

b. 1965, Basildon, Essex
Lives and works in Cardiff

Brighton Rock

Michael Cousin's film, performance and numerous collaborations display an absurd, comical and sometimes darkly sinister edge. Within his work there are urgent hints at a need to communicate some larger unspecified truth - something wordless.

Cousin’s work does not ask for a complete shift in philosophy, rather a bending of the rules. These social interventions, such as playing handball to decide the fate of the universe, searching for friends through small ads, or leading pigeons around a city centre are a small plea for a minor change in the viewers’ perspective.

A Creative Wales recipient, Cousin continues to exhibit internationally, and curates Outcasting, an online artists' video showcase.
