Lucy is a performance artist interested in hand-made and bodily-imagined artifacts. (She likes creative things that show something of the body and soul and process that made them). Lucy’s practice is centered on loosening the expectations we humans have created of what ‘humans’ are and how we have to behave, so we can broaden the ways we feel safe feeling, thinking and expressing. Shopfront is a great place for that! Lucy has, very happily, worked with the Bodylines program since 2012. She graduated from ANU in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Drama and English, and a Master of Art majoring in Sculpture, Performance and Installation from UNSW Art and Design in 2014.
Recent works include a dance installation in collaboration with prose writer and performer Tanya Thaweeskullchai called Carp, part of Bodies Breathe into the Barren (dance@ALASKA Projects, 2015), and Buried Sky, performed in Nishi Gallery in Canberra as part of the ‘Sound and Fury’ afterparty for the Art Not Apart Festival (2015), collaborating with Genevieve Kenneally. In 2016 Lucy co-devised The Forest Unyielding, a hybrid arts work about mental health and the creative arts, presented at 107 Projects, by Self Help Arts, directed by Margot Politis, and began a diploma in Remedial Massage.
