Curated by Alexandra Steinacker-Clark
Rosie Gibbens is a British artist who makes performances, videos, sculptures and photographs that feature her body. Using absurd humour, she explores gender performativity, sexual politics, consumer desire, labour and the slippery overlaps between these. She often makes sculptures that combine everyday objects with sewn body parts and become props in the performances or films. The mindset behind her work is of someone attempting to participate seamlessly in contemporary life, but not quite managing.
Rosie studied ‘Contemporary Art Practice’ at the Royal College of Art (2018) and ‘Performance Design and Practice’ at Central Saint Martins (2015).
She has exhibited and performed at institutions including Matt’s Gallery, TJ Boulting, South London Gallery, Zabludowicz Collection and Whitechapel Gallery. She was paired with Helen Chadwick for the exhibition ‘Body Poetics’ at Giant gallery (2023) that linked nine feminist artists working at the advent of feminist theory in the 1970’s and 80’s with a contemporary artist from a younger generation. Her multiscreen video project ‘The New Me’ commissioned by Daata has been shown at Expo Chicago (2022), at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (2023) and at Shoreditch Arts Club (2023). In 2022 Rosie won the Ingram Prize, was shortlisted for the Mark Tanner Sculpture Award and was awarded a Sarabande residency. In 2023 she was chosen as one of nine ‘best young artists working in London’ by Eddy Frankel, art editor of Time Out.
