Imogen Stidworthy

Imogen Stidworthy presented a live performance involving conversations between individual and grouped male and female voices. These improvised exchanges reflected on the nature of dialogue itself, interweaving between the authentic and the staged as they are processed musically through a live mix.

Imogen Stidworthy's work addresses aspects of communication through the voice, as sculptural, spatial, sonic and linguistic material. She reflects on how we locate ourselves in social space through our voices, and how we are positioned by them. 

Her work has been presented recently in solo shows in, amongst others, AKINCI Amsterdam (2010 and 2013), Matts Gallery London (2003 and 2011), and Arnolfini, Bristol (2010), and in major group exhibitions such as Bergen Triennale 2013, Busan Biennale 2012 and Documenta 12 (2007); her curatorial work includes a two-part exhibition focusing on the borders of language, at MuhKA, Antwerp (2008) and Fundacio Antoni Tapies, Barcelona (2012). She was the recipient of the Liverpool Art Prize 2008 and the Prix de Rome (NL) 1996, and her work is in collections including Centre Georges Pompidou, MuhKA Antwerp and FRAC Bourgogne. Stidworthy has taught in many art schools and research institutes including a guest professorship at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna and as Advising researcher at the Jan van Eyck Academy, Maastricht (NL); she is currently as a Senior Lecturer at Liverpool John Moores University. 

Imogen Stidworthy’s performance was co-produced for Radar and Thinking City. Thinking City is a collaboration between Liverpool Biennial, Tate Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University.
