Jonathan Mosley

Jonathan Mosley is an architect and academic at the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK, where he leads the MA Architecture programme. Since 2000 he has developed collaboration with artist Sophie Warren. They have a critical spatial practice that employs strategies of play, hybridisation and the construction of imaginary architectures to resist homogeneous perceptions of architectural and urban space. Using language, publication, event, still and moving imagery and installation Warren & Mosley construct situations, an informal architecture of possibility, moving between material fact and the fiction of the imagination. The practice has responded to and infiltrated environments of the multi-use sports hall, the gallery, the car park, the motorway service station, the construction site and the offices and corridors of the institutions that build our cities.

Their work has been exhibited internationally including Casco, Utrecht (2011) and The Showroom, London (2010) with Rogue Game an ongoing series of hybrid games in collaboration with Can Altay, Tin Sheds Gallery, Sydney (2011), Berlin 60th and 58th International Film Festivals (2010 and 2008), Sydney Architecture Festival (2010), Crosstalk, Budapest (2010), within Coalesce: Happenstance curated by Paul O’Neill at Smart Project Space, Amsterdam (2009), ITU, Istanbul (2008), Gymruy International Biennale, Armenia (2004), Centre of Contemporary Art, Glasgow (2003), The Armory Show, New York (2002), Frederike Taylor Gallery, New York (2001) and Gasworks, London (2000).

Initiating trans-disciplinary projects the practice is a site of exchange and ongoing collaboration with artists, writers and architects. A book of their recent project ‘Beyond Utopia’ with contributions by Maria Fusco, Brandon LaBelle, Marie-Anne McQuay, Paul O’Neill, Elizabeth Price, Jane Rendell, Lee Stickells and Robin Wilson will be published in 2012 by Errant Bodies Press, Los Angeles/Berlin.
