Josh Bilton (b. Hertfordshire, UK) is based in London. He studied at the London College of Communication, completing his BA in Photography in 2007. He graduated with an MA in Photography in 2010 from the Royal College of Art. His practice in photography and video shifts between performance and documentary, often constructing scenarios that both depict and engender subjective encounters with our environment and its histories. His latest work Undersong consists of an immersive three-screen video installation and self- guided audio walking tour that delves into the semiotics of Portland stone, from its geological origins to its heralded place in the construction of British sovereign identity.
Bilton is currently a tutor at the Royal Drawing School and a visiting workshop facilitator at Kettle's Yard in Cambridge. His work has been shown in the UK, as well as Europe and USA. He was selected for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries and Saatchi New Sensations in 2011. Recent exhibitions and projects include Open House Cambridge with Kettle's Yard and resident artist Harold Offeh, (2017); a solo show at SPACE, London (2016); ACAVA Arts Organisation, London (2015); The Photographer's Gallery, London (2014); L'Atelier KSR, Berlin (2014); and Rosphoto, St Petersburg (2013).
