Edwards, Sean


Interested in things that get ‘left behind’ or ‘overlooked’, Sean Edwards makes use of photography, installation and moving image to explore the sculptural potential of the everyday. In 2009 Edwards undertook a residency in the Maelfa shopping centre in Llanedeyrn on the outskirts of Cardiff, close to where he grew up. Built in the 1970s around a block of high-rise flats in a council estate, the Maelfa shopping centre was once a well-used and popular institution, but later fell into disrepair. It is now the subject of a multi-million pound regeneration scheme.
