Bedwyr Williams is interested in the absolute worst-case scenarios and the people that get caught up in them – average-sized people in over-sized situations. In Echt, a major commission for Tramway, Williams presents a full-size diorama of such an encounter in a dark clearing. The immersive installation includes a film depicting a dystopian future in which a fast-track feudal system has left the country divided among new chieftains. In this new world, where status is based on conspicuous consumption, hoarders are kings. These accumulators of objects and junk have set up their new courts in former dancehalls and nightclubs, and are accompanied by a host of Williams’ acutely observed characters. His curious and fantastical film imagines a future in which an apocalyptic event has forced humanity to reform society, having disregarded previous rules.
