Peter Shenai is a multidisciplinary artist based in London, UK. While working across installation, sound, and sculpture, he puts the focus on the things that are usually obvious and ubiquitous to give them a new meaning. In recent works Peter Shenai developed new ways of communicating data through physical artworks, enabling audiences to engage with scientific and cultural stories through tangible, interactive and multi-sensory encounters. His work has been exhibited internationally across London, Tokyo, Venice and elsewhere. Among recent creative collaborations are projects involving composer Laurence Osborn and musicians from the London Symphony Orchestra, as well as scientists at Imperial College and King’s College.
„Maybe my “artistic medium” is the taken-for-granted. My practice is an attempt to bring these things back into focus, and an invitation to be astonished. The covid pandemic has only strengthened my resolve to try to see, and appreciate, the things that hide in plain sight.“
