    Artist Statement

    Gabrielle Hoad makes  photographs, objects, actions and site-responsive works, which may invite contributions from human and nonhuman collaborators. 

    She has made work with and for sites including a prehistoric hill fort (Turn (the) leaves) an organic farm (Foreign Soil) and a retail district (Stowage). Project collaborators have included glider pilots, homing pigeons, trees, biologists, engineers and programmers. 

    She is an associate of Preston Street Union, an affiliation of art workers based in Exeter who generate new work and learning through collaborative, social processes.

    Note: Despite what's implied above right, the only artforms I practise are Digital, Drawing, Environment, Film & video, Installation, Intervention, Live art, Mixed media, Performance, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture, Sound and Text. (site glitch).
