Andy Merritt

Andy Merritt is one half of the duo Something & Son. They explore the social and environmental issues that define our time via everyday scenarios, criss-crossing the boundaries between the visual arts, architecture and design. Their projects build new heterotopias for people and/or other species to use through permanent architectural installations/spaces and functional sculptures. Andy is currently developing a long-term project with multiple iterations, researching how humancentric objects and systems can be reappropriated to build, rather than destroy, ecosystems.

Past exhibitions and commissions include: Tate Britain; Tate Modern, V&A Museum; Artangel; Design Museum; Somerset House; Royal Botanical Gardens Kew; 2014 Istanbul Design Biennial; 2014 Folkestone Triennial; 2013 Gwangju Design Biennale, South Korea; 2012 & 2017 Manchester International Festival; 2012 Milan Design Week; 2012 Cultural Olympia; and the Wellcome Collection amongst others.
