Victoria Sharples: Offering from the River
Victoria Sharples is an artist based in South Yorkshire. Their practice meditates on post-humanist performativity and ecological philosophies relative to macroscopic and microscopic matter. They often work with people and non-human bodies across spatial, temporal and lingustic situ facilitating international and interdisciplinary practice-led research projects with artists, scientists and spiritual practitioners. The works produced from this practice take the form of time-sensitive performances where video, artifacts, photography and scores record or account for the project through phonetic, numerical and audio-visual matter.
For GLOAM, Sharples presents: Offering from the River, an exhibition surveying a microcosm of spiritual and scientific ecologies. The exhibtion speculates on the permeability of biological and machinic matter through site-specific performance, laboratory readings, and a collection of artifacts. The exhibition opens August 26–September 11, and will be accompanied by an artist talk on September 3, 2022. In this, Sharples will share their thoughts on human and non-human ecologies, interdisciplinary practice and how ethics underpins collective approaches to making. Suitable for all ages (NB. Contains subtle information about cremation practices within the context of Hindu and Buddhist practices apropos Tibetan Diaspora).
