Born Stoke on Trent, 1964, lives and works in Glasgow
Alan Currall studied Fine Art and Staffordshire University and received an MFA from Glasgow School of Art in 1995.
Alan Currall makes video and computer-based works, often depicting himself or other protagonists talking directly to the camera. A recurring theme within this body of work has been a personal investigation into the nature of the authentic experience. Recent work has also involved recorded audio monologues made in response to, and for the accompaniment of, both found and constructed sculptural objects.
