ARTIST INFO

About 

At the junction of photography, installation, poetry, performance, and technology, multidisciplinary Contemporary artist Claire Luxton explores the place of humans in nature and the specificity of the female experience in society, including prejudices built around the opposition of beauty, intellect and mental health. At the centre of her practice lies her own vulnerability as a way to connect with viewers. By assuming different disguises and utilising self-portraiture as a powerful medium, Luxton deftly engages with multifaceted notions of female identity.
