James Prevett makes things to gather around - objects, events, text, video that are often combined together as sculpture.  His work draws on many influences from music to poetry to the histories of monuments. James enjoys working with other people to make things, embracing the creativity and unpredictability that comes with making things together. He thinks everybody can and should ‘make’, and that this can bring unexpected beauty to the world.

He has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally in countries such as Finland, Thailand, Singapore, USA, Austria and Brazil. He was part of a team of artists, musicians and architects selected to represent Great Britain at the Venice Biennale of Architecture 2006. The ongoing series Patsastellaan: Parties for Public Sculpture invites artists to make something new for an existing public sculpture in Helsinki. He is currently a Sculpture Lecturer at the Fine Arts Academy, Helsinki. He lives and works in Helsinki, Finland.
