— About me and how to get in touch
About Amy Lord
I make original multi-textured and layered encounters, experiences and spaces; mixing installation, media forms and craft. I’d describe my work as exploring what connects us as human beings and having fun blurring the lines between reality and art. My artworks will almost always engage people in unusual ways – from a one on one meeting to a chanced-upon interactive installation.
I love imagining something in my head and making it with my hands, the therapeutic power of craft and transforming environments to make them more joyful.
I’ve made work for the past eight years, which has flexed and grown with me as my interests and ways of working have changed.
I’ve split my projects into chronological chapters, in an attempt to tell the story of what I’ve been passionate about and where my head and heart have ventured, and where they’re currently at.
I’ve presented work at SPILL National Review of Live Art, BAC, Forest Fringe, Deptford X, The Late Shows Newcastle, The Basement Brighton, Camden People’s Theatre, RichMix, The Bluecoat, Barbican Plymouth, Shoreditch Town Hall, Queen’s Hall Hexham, Whitstable Biennale Satellite and on the streets of Manhattan via Art in Odd Places.
As well as delivering my own projects, I have been commissioned by a wide range of partners including NewcastleGateshead Initiative, Juice festival, bait and The Empty Space.
I collaborates regularly with artist Louise Orwin under the guise of Lemonade and Laughing Gas, a multi-sensory artistic events company.
Holla at me
As well as running my own projects, I’m keen to collaborate or work on briefs and often work on a commission basis. I’d love to hear from you.
