Clare ThorntonArtist, Event organiser, Teacher, Researcher
I am an interdisciplinary maker working predominantly with performance, sculpture, installation and print. Using a variety of props and materials I devise 'scenes' to examine my relationship to certain objects, texts and spaces. Exploring specific locations, libraries and archives I then enact/present my findings playing with memory, materiality and desire. Conversation and cross-disciplinary exchange are crucial elements in my process of making and I collaborate with groups/individuals across diverse fields of art and science to produce new works for public art contexts, museums and galleries nationally and internationally. I am a studio holder at KARST Projects, Plymouth
