Sandy Williams IV is an interdisciplinary artist from Virginia Beach, VA. His work as an artist is interested in record keeping and concepts of time, and the ways in which the language of memory finds plurality within our culture. It is an investigation of the historical, as it is an instrument of simultaneous erasure and creation, and the way “the historical” teaches us what is important; and conversely, what can be forgotten. These films, sculptures, photographs, performances, and text works often highlight the common threads that connect the official record to our colloquial memory. His work has shown recently at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Richmond, and The Second Street Gallery in Charlottesville, VA.
