Stephen Wilks was born in England in 1964. He works and lives in Berlin. He stutied at the Beaux-Arts de Paris and at the Royal Academy of arts of Amsterdam. He is a visual artist with multiple dimensions and involvements. He uses many medias : photography, sculpture, drawings and ceramics, and his work is always related to the relationship between the society and the people. This involvement brings him to represent a universal humanity. His project of travelling donkeys perfectly pictures this : the story of hundred of people who made those little animals made of fabric travel ( This work about migration and cultures can also be found in his work related to the migrants situation. This brought him to create an impressive installation of 1 400 bottles made of ceramics, that represent stranded bottles, the only thing that remains after a flow of migrants.
