About the BANNER 2018/19 artists
Sharon Fraser is an Urban Artist from Glasgow and is a graduate of the BA Contemporary Performance Practice at Royal Conservatoire Scotland. She explores her political voice in performance through autobiographical story-telling with a strong Glasgow dialect. Also a Mother to four children, her work explores domesticity and draws on her experiences using Live Art as the main artery to her work.
Lorie Jo Trainor Buckingham and Ana Vicente met in 2016 on the MA Performance Making at Goldsmiths, University of London and have been working as a collaborative duo ever since. Prior to their MA they both had individual fine art practices which they developed over the past fifteen years. Together, they create site specific work exploring the body in space and time, generating real-time experiences to induce a phenomenological state of attention and focus for the viewer.
