Sam Taylor-Wood (English, born 1967)
Sam Taylor-Wood works with photography and film. Much of her art explores human emotions and the boundaries between private and public lives, from intimate, personal moments to emotional dramas. Her piece ‘Brontosaurus’ of 1995 is a slowed-down film of a naked man dancing alone in his bedroom. Other works have shown people arguing and crying. More recently she has used celebrities as her subject matter, such as ‘David’, her video portrait of a sleeping David Beckham. Taylor-Wood was born in London and studied at Goldsmith College. She was short-listed for the Turner Prize in 1998.
