My work is a visual response to a current global predicament of mobility and displacement on one hand, and our desire for permanence, authenticity or sense of belonging on the other. Addressing questions around nostalgia, national identity, the environment and labour, the work frames a present, that references the past through its use of materials, processes, images and ideas.

Born in Hitchin, UK in 1979, Tim Greaves now lives in Berlin, Germany. His work has been shown in a number of different contexts and international locations.
