Lucy is an artist and filmmaker. She is drawn to beginning with the extraordinary appearance of ordinary things – things that are already in the world, and that invite small interventions between the poetic and scientific, philosophical and humorous, intimate and political.
Her background in performance making and choreography informs her approach to the work she now makes in different media, and she continues to explore innovative forms of collaboration – working with people from a range of communities and fields of expertise. Her moving image work has been shown on television, (Ch4, Filmfour, BBC4 and BBC2) and internationally in both galleries and at film festivals.
Between 2005 – 2009 she was an associate member of Goat Island performance, making four moving image works with the company as well as contributing to writing and live performance. Since 2009 she has made site-specific performance work in different settings – including the Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood; Wandsworth Park and at B-Motion Festival Bassano, Italy, (with Tabea Martin).
In 2009 she was awarded a fellowship from South East Dance for her work creating choreographies for the screen. In 2010, alongside Becky Edmunds, Chirstinn Whyte, Claudia Kappenberg and Gill Clarke she co-curated the What if… festival at Siobhan Davies Studios. In 2012 With Becky Edmunds she co-curated What Matters at Siobhan Davies Studios, and Small Matters at Dance Umbrella.
Lucy’s teaching has included a six week course at Tate Modern (Choreography: experiencing Space, Time and Ideas), and an annual week-long course for filmmakers and dancers in Bassano, Italy. In 2011-2012 she was Artist in Residence for the Whitechapel Gallery at Central Foundation Girls’ school. The work made during the residency has been exhibited at the Whitechapel between December 2012 and March 2013.
In 2013 Lucy is developing both her own projects, and with Becky Edmunds as straybird.
