Josie Perry

Josie Perry is an artist born in 1996, in the UK. Shifting between performance, sculpture and drawing, her practice explores conflicts between personal situations, interpersonal fantasies and regulatory systems. She often plays with tensions between controlled precision and bodily excess, and is interested in the female voice as a disruptive force. Josie Perry graduated from the Ruskin School of Art (UK) in 2017, and is currently based in Rotterdam, where she studies at the Piet Zwart Institute.

Recent exhibitions of her work include TAKE NOTE SOFT Hands SOFT hands, Galerie Lecq, Kunst aan de sluis, Rotterdam (2018); See Here, organised by Quarrylab, Neales Auction House, Nottingham (2017); Bring Me My Cloak, LVP House, London (2017); Pliancy Required, The Edward Boyle Auditorium, Oxford (2017); What is the Future of Art? The Turbine Hall, Tate Modern, London (2016); Stage Envelopes, Magdalene Auditorium, Oxford (2016), Performance Evening, Ruskin Centre for Performance, Oxford (2016); Cusp, The Queen's College Chapel, Oxford (2015); Display; Disperse, The Space, Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham (2012).

In 2018 Perry was awarded The Francis Bernard Caunt Educational Trust.
