Introductory text, June 2021

Roy Boswell (he/they, lives and works in Helsinki, Finland) makes art at the intersecting point of writing, composition and sculpture,

typographical forms bleeding into figurative images, text structure broken down and re-assembled; writing sculpture; instruction and score as possible rules for listening; objects beginning in textuality and music composition; social layers and friendship; radio play.

Roy has a previous MA in Sound from the Theatre Academy Helsinki and is currently completing an MFA in sculpture at KuvA, Helsinki.
