Lucy is an artist and moving-image maker. She is drawn to beginning with the extraordinary appearance of ordinary things – things that invite small interventions between the poetic and scientific, philosophical and humorous, intimate and political.
She works with an expanded sense of choreography and an interest in extending choreographic thinking beyond dance in order to offer more haptic ways of relating to the world around us.
Between 2005 – 2009 she was an associate member of Goat Island performance group, making four moving image works with the company as well as contributing to writing and live performance. 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.
In 2009 she was awarded a fellowship from South East Dance for her work creating choreographies for the screen. Out of this fellowship she created a platform with Becky Edmunds for collaborative curations called straybird. Between 2010 and 2015 straybird curated various festivals and events including What if… and What Matters at Siobhan Davies Studios. In 2012 – 2013 Lucy was artist in residence for Whitechapel Gallery and in 2014 she was the first research artist at The Foundling Museum.
