seekers of lice

Artist, Writer, Publisher

seekers of lice proposes art as an insect bite, infecting the blood through proximity, anecdote, annexation, colonisation, infection, inoculation: scratch the itch & itch the scratch. seekers of lice works with text, image and objects. Works include writing for performance, including collaboration with other artists, making objects and text pieces for exhibition, talks, interventions, and writing for publication in books and magazines. Works are sometimes of an ephemeral nature, finding gaps and spaces in which to operate. Recent books include Theatre of Objects (VerySmallKitchen) 2012 and limber (The Knives, Forks and Spoons Press) 2013. seekers of lice has work in various collections including Tate Library, Tate Britain; Modern British Collections, The British Library; MoMA Library, USA ; Joan Flasch Artists' Book Collection, USA; Chelsea College of Art and Design Library, London; Artist's Book Collection, Centre for Fine Print Research, UWE; Czytelnia Liberatury Malopolski Instytut Kultury, Kraków, Poland.
