William Horner was born in London, studied sculpture at the Royal College of Art and went on to set up Strangelove Studios in London. His work moves between object and image, setting up a play of associations through various materials and forms. He is interested in the precarious status of objects, how they fall out of use and re-emerge as images of themselves, opening up other purposes and imaginings. Having moved out of London, he now works from a cow byre on Pierrepont farm, Frensham.
