Harry Parr-Young

Harry Parr-Young is a British/Portuguese multi-disciplinary designer based in Stockholm who
has been exploring and experimenting with rotting craft as his main process in his artistic
practice. He uses rotting as a tool to explore topics related to heritage and cultural identity.
With rotting’s complex ornamental-colonial past, he’s been questioning its use today within a
material context, re-interpreting its relationship with the idea of the “Exotic”. Since heritage
is defined as something in constant flux, he’s been looking at how to perceive and visualise
this ancient material and dying craft with another lens and interpretation, combining old and
modern techniques along the way.
