Posthuman Entanglements: Reclaiming Female Subjectivity in the Skin of Nature?

Victoria Lucas’ installation-based artworks incorporate sculpture with video, photography, sound and performance. She uses technology and sculpture to remap, embody and entangle the material strata of landscapes, a process in which female subjectivity is reimagined and reclaimed in place. In this presentation, Lucas will talk about a small disused quarry and its inhabitants, situated in the North of England, which has become central to her PhD research and artistic practice over the past two years. More information can be found at victorialucas.co.uk.
